    I dispute that, I'm afraid. Like Tdol, I think the title was a case of wishful thinking. After reading the title, I had expected to see Letterman walk all over O'Reilly, and that just did not happen, in my opinion.

    As someone who enjoys debate, I thought neither man covered himself in glory, with constant interruptions and cheap gibes.

    I find this an example of total pwnage.

    I don't know. Thank goodness it was there long enough for me to follow the link - fascinating.

    I decided to remove it in case the subject matter derailed the thread. However, it is simply a stunning example of oratory. Galloway turns into the Dundee Demosthenes, and from the moment he picks on the word 'slobbering', he has won. It's compelling and merciless as he piles it on- slobbering, reverse metamorphosis, slime, etc, and by the end Hitchens looks a rather forlorn figure, fiddling with his cigarettes. That's real pwnage.

    O'Reilly faced a bit of cheek and a few interruptions, but also had the best joke- how to find Fox News.
