    i thought it was hilarious when he talked about genetically modified foods designed to pick themselves...on another note, i think it was the wrong setting for that kind of act. the guy is brilliant though...he knows his stuff.

    Its interesting to see the evolution of congress and how they allowed an entertainer to testify. I suppose if you wade through the jokes he makes a good point.

    Personally Im waiting for the day they have Jenna Jameson wearing a maids outfit testify on behalf of prostitutes!

    When you can't make a logical appeal, you have to resort to emotional appeals, or comedy....

    I'm surprised they let this happen and didn't escort him out when he started.

    I enjoyed it... but didn't enjoy the fact that congress let it happen. Very unprofessional of them IMO.

    You say that as if Capitol Hill does not emulate that strategy already.

    Usually they get by with just the emotional appeal

    I guess congress will make up for this fumble by starting another steroid investigation in baseball because the pitchers have put up some gaudy numbers this year.
