I accept that US politicians have a duty to investigate issues that affect their constituents but I am growing heartily sick of them sticking their noses into all manner of places they have no business being near. Hearings into the US car industry, the Iraq war, Afghanistan, and of course the BP oil explosion are valid areas of US public interest but they SHOULD be properly conducted "hearings" not some sort of media hyped Punch and Judy show which is what they seem to be degenerating into. I thought the "soap opera" antics at the BP hearing with these pathetic individuals desperately trying to score points over Tony Hayward was excruciating and was little better than a precursor to a lynching. The subsequent attempt to implicate BP (as the current US hate figure) in the release of Megrahi was mind-numbingly grotesque (and I can see little justification for it other than a further attempt to kick someone while they are down and now they have decided that since that link seems to be a non-starter they want to keep their foul faces in the media by going after the medical "experts" who declared he was about to breathe his last breath (Link - http://news.uk.msn.com/uk/articles.aspx?cp-documentid=154351308 Just how gullible do these pathetic little creatures think we are? They had no interest in finding the ruth in the BP grilling, it was just point scoring and trying to get a grovelling apology. Similarly (IMHO) they only had a go at trying to establish BP links to the Megrahi release because they thought it would be an easy win for them (well done Alec Salmond for telling them to shove it). All they want is to get their extra 15 minutes of fame as the US approaches the mid-term elections and it makes me sick watching their pathetic posturing - what cynical self-interested scum these so called "elected representatives" are.
