Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - I was up very late last night looking this up because I knew it was going to come up today. One of you clowns is about to call me and bring up the Barbary pirates and how Thomas Jefferson bombed them back into the stone ages, settled Tripoli for democracy and instituted a constitutional order in Libya back in 1803.

As a matter of fact, if you do your historical research and you do it with the source documents, you’ll find entire segments in what is known as the Congressional Globe. You can find any day in Congressional history going all the way back to the first Congress in 1789. If you look in November of 1803, you can find the entire debate over the Louisiana Purchase.
