Norm Coleman

It is interesting when a Republican, Norm Coleman-former Chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, is accused of flip-flopping. Every Democrat that runs for national office gets accused of flip-flopping. Every Democrat gets accused of polling to find out what they believe in. Norm is getting a bit of a dose of "Rove" medicine as callers ask him about his votes and changes on the issues after the November election. He cannot scramble to the center fast enough. He says that his changes are based on what he has learned. He calls polling "listening to his constituents." By the way, with all that there has been to investigate over the past six years, have you heard of something Norm investigated? Think, think, think. Oh yes, he did investigate Kofi Annon in 2004.

I will remind Norm, when he runs, in '08, that his answers, to being called a flip-flopper etc., are reasonable ones for any political servant. I expect him to tell Rove to jump in the lake when Rove tells Norm to hammer Al Frankin on "flip-flopping, and polling to get the tenor of public opinion.

I wonder how long it will take Norm to stick his finger in the air and switch back to the Democratic party now that the wind is blowing that way.
