    You have to understand that there ARE situations where it is ok and within the rules and customs of procedure to interrupt. I was a member of a debate society in college, and interrupting to ask questions was quite common on the floor of debate. And have you ever seen the House of Commons in the UK???

    Why does it even occur to you to say that? Have I ever suggested that Thomas in particular is a rude man?

    That's great, so there are circumstances where rude behavior is tolerated for some reason or other. All the same, somehow I doubt there was a conversation between this guy and the committee, wherein they advised him that they were going to interrupt him whenever the felt like it and where he said that was fine with him.

    How is it that you don't see the hypocrisy of interrupting someone when they're talking, only to call their behavior insulting?

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Come into my house, and if I think you are being rude by not speaking the language, you're gonna here it. The insult was by the Mexican, not the board member.

    Quit all the liberal whining.

    I don't have a problem with the Senator speaking up about it. That just makes him an idiot. My problem is that the way he did it made him a total hypocrite.

    Using an interpreter is insulting?

    I wouldn't come into your house or elect you to Congress, so your problem with him is still yours and your analogy doesn't work.

    My friend speaks French and English equally well. She said that if she were going to go testify in a French court, she would take a translator. My light finally came on, and I said "So he could speak from the heart and choose his words well, in his native language, right?" And she said "Exactly."

    This has been the exact same argument being made in this thread the entire time.

    So then what's the point? Do you now agree with it because your friend said it?

    When somebody firmly disagrees with you, and then firmly changes their mind, it's generally bad form to back-hand them like that.
