Mike Gravel: Who Is This Guy?

He was the guy in 1971 who figured out a way to legally "enter all 7,000 pages of the Pentagon Papers, once top-secret, into the public record" by reading them to the obscure Subcommittee on Buildings and Grounds, which he chaired. (Thanks TruthDig)

Oh, and he cried when he read them. He of course was ridiculed for his emotional display. I guess this means that he was weak and that there should be an End of the Weak. (gratuitous yet related plug to another one of my blogs).

He may not make it as a presidential candidate (campaign website) but he sure is a refreshing change from the rest of that gang.
