Thanks Galloway, Now Please Go Home

I didn't think anyone gave any credit to George Galloway anymore, until I heard he is touring the U.S. I wanted to say something about him but the guy is so far off the mark and dirty in his business, politics and rhetoric so it seemed meaningless; you either grasp it or you don't. (I would never make it as a teacher). So instead of reading the transcripts from the debate with Hitchens, I went looking for some recent comments. To my delight, I found this, via Andrew:

The Honorable Member of Britain's House of Commons has become the new love-child of American progressives for his in-your-face accusations about our own government's mendacity in sending our troops to war in Iraq. I myself quoted Galloway with admiration.

But the man who saluted the "courage" of Saddam Hussein in 1994, who today can't and won't account for nearly a million dollars in income and expenditures for a charity he founded to buy medicine for Iraqi children is not, friends, the best choice as our anti-war spokesman.

Where did this guy come from? Who invited him here? The answer: US Senate REPUBLICANS. As Cindy Sheehan was gathering public sympathy as the Gold Star mom against the killing in Iraq, the Republican party decided to import an easier target to pummel. So they brought over the "I-salute-your-courage, Saddam" religious fundamentalist crack-pot who can't tell us where the money went.

That's why the Republicans chose him for us. This gross cartoon from abroad whose "charity" is stuffed with loot from an Oil-for-Food profiteer is the image they prefer on TV to Cindy Sheehan whom they dare not confront.

Yes, Galloway was the punching bag that punched back, and for that we are appreciative. Now GO HOME, George.



Edit: Powerline has a nice beating of Gorgeous George.
