    Senator Levin is one of the few really true blue good guys we can count on -- and he and Conyers both are from Michigan.

    Levin is an attorney by education and a former state attorney general; meaning, he's good at interrogation.  Read the bio, maybe the rest of his actions will make sense.

    We need to keep the anger aimed at the folks who truly deserve our enmity (like Norm Coleman).

      Or is that question now verbottin?

        Take a look at Levin's record of voting.  I don't think he's voting on behalf of any interest other than that of his constituents -- mostly moderate Democrats here in Michigan.

        I'll point out, too, that after having several discussions in the last month with his offices, it's quite apparent that Senators and Representatives both are so very busy trying to do their jobs that they don't always get timely information in advance of any vote.  Sounds crazy in this day and age, but it's true.  That is just beginning to change and our dialogue with elected officials is the catalyst.

        And it is our dialogue that makes a difference about any outcome.  Take Real ID Act, for example; Levin's office had only heard from one other constituent on this legislation, in support of this bill.  What if I hadn't called or asked other  progressives to call him after I learned this?  Would Levin be solely blame if his opinion wasn't in line with ours?  Would his ethnicity/race/origin/gender/orientation have anything to do at all with that if we as constituents didn't do our jobs by communicating with him?

          Here's how it played to the homies in the UK:

            Before the hearing began, the Respect MP for Bethnal Green and Bow even had some scorn left over to bestow generously upon the pro-war writer Christopher Hitchens. "You're a drink-soaked former Trotskyist popinjay," Mr Galloway in formed him. "Your hands are shaking. You badly need another drink," he added later, ignoring Mr Hitchens's questions and staring intently ahead. "And you're a drink-soaked ..." Eventually Mr Hitchens gave up. "You're a real thug, aren't you?" he hissed, stalking away.

            i love this.  all further references to hitchens should henceforth be accompanied by the epithet drink-soaked former trotskyist popinjay.

            That's how it played in Downing Street, number 10. If you recall, the occupant is under fire and may be unseated by backbenchers because of his conspiratorial role in the lead-up to the United States unprovked invasion of an unarmed sovereign nation. True, Phony Tony was cheered and applauded when he spoke to the nation in a full session of congress. But he's still envious of Galloway, it's killing him.

            Phony Tony plays the well-known pantomime rôle of Sweeny Todd the Barber. And that's IT, for him.

            This will supply you with what you need to know about how Number 10 operates:
            Cruel, pitiful, miserable vicious, : worthy of death by hanging?

      To me, the question that he was insisting on was irrelevant and worse, petty, when painted into context as Galloway did.  Just an opinion.
