Much of last night’s Democratic debate was a snoozefest, but then there was Sen. Mike Gravel. Oh yes! This was a classic moment. We need more of this kind of thing, I think.

Darn dial-up; can't read anything. What did he say?? I'm bad at actually watching debates. They irritate my stomach.

Um anyway. Well, to be fair, he's not actually *from* Alaska; he was born and raised in Massachusetts. (I read that moved to Alaska specifically to run for office.) And he actually lives in Arlington, VA now. He played a key role in ending the draft and releasing the Pentagon Papers. He was apparently into environmental and Inuit causes. I hope he hasn't gone crazy in his later years (although living in this society is enough to make anybody lose their grip).

He just went on an old-coot tear about how all the other candidates were arrogant nobodies who wouldn't end the war and wanted to use nukes on Iran. He also had some kind of plan where he wanted congress to pass a law making it a felony for Bush to continue the war.
