While watching both Sen. Leahy and Sen. Kennedy browbeat the nominee for attorney general, Alberto Gonzales, the word "buffoon" came to mind. Gonzales, in his short life, has accomplished more than the two senators combined.

But what really "took the cake" is when Kennedy expressed his outrage about the procedure of wrapping a towel around a prisoner's head and dripping water on the towel, or as Kennedy expressed it, "drowning the prisoner." Kennedy, outraged about someone drowning? Need I say more?
