Ah, Normie lad, we hardly know ye

Coleman haiku du jour:

I oppose the war.
Hold it! I adore the war.
Is today Tuesday?

Americablog, whose writers are in DC, Paris and other un-Minnesotas, seems to have a very clear picture of our Normie:

3 more Republican Senators come out against Bush escalation plan for Iraq
by John in DC - 1/22/2007 08:25:00 PM
Susan Collins (ME) and Norm Coleman (MN) - two lightweights - and John Warner of Virginia, who is hardly a lightweight. Warner was the former chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Collins is worried about re-election, and Coleman can't figure out what to think - one minute he's criticizing Bush's Iraq strategy, the next he's condemning the Dems for opposing it. Pick a team, Norm. But Warner, that's interesting. Warner is part of the old guard, and I mean that in a good way. He's what Washington was - a bit nicer, a bit more genteel. The fact that he's standing up to Bush is quite interesting. His opposition could have coattails among other Republicans looking for cover. More from AP.

Ah! It seems that Americablog has the measure of the man:
