Wow, that was a compelling piece of tape. I hope those biased reporters were listening carefully, because the sentiment he was expressing was what the vast majority of Americans feel. It was also interesting at the end to hear his views about the war and its funding. Anyone who knows me knows I disagree with his views on it, but if every politician had the courage to stand on principled views like Gravel does, the world would be a better place.

Sen. Gravel was another one who was marginalized by our media and denied an equal stage for political debate during the primary season. The media funneled the current candidates to us...much like a mama bird regurgitating its food into the hungry mouths of its young.

Rick, great analogy. Except I don't know about the hungry part, I think it was more like force feeding.
