Anyone who has seen the British Parliament in action knows it is not the quiet solemn affair our congress & senate are. In fact John Derbyshire at National Review Online says:
Galloway came up through the UK parliamentary system, though, where you have to be fierce and clever in debate, and need to be able to think fast on your feet. The US Senate is full of pompous bores, stuffed up to the nose holes with a conviction of their own terrific importance, whose idea of debate is to drone their way through a speech some minimum-wage staffer has written up for them. This was like watching an alley mongrel let loose in a room full of pampered, overfed lap dogs.

From watching both houses in action on CSPAN I have to agree. Even when lively US Senate & Congressional debate is in heated action it looks like a calm sermon on Sunday morning. When parliament is in session it constantly looks like a brawl is about to break out.

Those of you cheering Galloway on understand, his election is under investigation (the same sort of shennagins that went on in Milwaukee & in Washington state) he is under investigation by the parliament for the fraud regarding the Mariam charity.
