Now if someone similar could stand up to Eagle Forum's tight-fisted, corrupt control of Utah politics, maybe some rational people could accomplish something...

I like Gravel - you could tell the interviewers didn't get what they expected! Three cheers for common sense!

Senor, I'm not sure the Eagle Forum has the control everyone thinks they do.

Natalie, the interviewers' reaction is why this audio is so classic. They were obviously expecting a good, partisan, Palin bash-fest and they were so surprised and disappointed when Gravel actually stood up for comment sense.

I have a new respect for this former Senator.
