Heimlich v. Bearable Bob

The Heimlich Maneuver and Bearable Bob Salsbury had a pretty good set-to earlier today re: FEMA Director Michael Brown being sacked from his post of leading New Orleans rescue/relief efforts — Heimlich, from the conservative corner, Bob, from the liberal one. Both are sharp blogosphere personalities. Both broke amiably when asked by the HBO ringmaster to do so. Here’s my question: If the two of them were involving in a no-holds barred thumb wrestling contest, who would win?
