Boy, Norm Coleman really hates the U.N. Now he is taking credit for keeping the Internet in the hands of the U.S. and out of the hands of the U.N. Funny, I hadn't heard that Coleman had been appointed ambassador.

"Ya gotta be humble. I was just Paul Revere stopping Munich." ...or something like that.

Yeah, Norm, your last WSJ article about the U.N. turned out to be so influential. I'm sure you were just riding off the momentum from it this time. The only reason people paid attention to his Kofi Annan article was because everyone knew him to be such a self-promoting toady, they just assumed him to be speaking for the Bush administration by proxy.

What I found more troubling in the Strib article were his comments about ending government oversight and selling the internet off to the private sector. If that happens, say goodbye to cheap access and hello to executives banning certain "content" they (and politicians they're close to) don't like from online expression through their portals.

Lastly, has anyone noticed that Norm has stopped giving interviews to the Minnesota media this year? The last time he was on MPR was December 9, 2004. He's been on Almanac once for about five minutes in August. His media appearances this year seem to have been on national programs like Wolf Blitzer, and possibly Minnesota-based right-wing talk shows. I wouldn't know, I don't listen to those programs.
