Before Allawi arrived on Capitol Hill, Senator Mark Dayton, Democrat of Minnesota, called the speech "more window dressing from the Bush campaign."
Dayton told The Pioneer Press in St. Paul that he would "respectfully not attend" because Allawi "ought to be over there running the country, and not coming here for a staged production."
Big Trunk takes note as well:
Is there any chance we could turn Dayton's boycott into a permanent arrangement and keep him glued to the television? Dayton is up for reelection in 2006.
Maybe he could be with the starving pygmies in New Guinea.
