George Galloway: Then and Now

Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong and 100,000 people paid with their lives; 1600 of them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies; 15,000 of them wounded, many of them disabled forever on a pack of lies.

British Member of Parliament George Galloway, testifying before the U.S. Senate on May 17, 2005.

“Would you like me to be the cat?”

  1. If Tom Hanks could star in Bossom Buddies and later be considered a serious dramatic actor, and if Sean Penn could star in Fast Times at Ridgemont High and gain the respect he has now, then anyone can either reverse their roles from serious to fool and back again.

    Miracles do happen.

  2. Ah. It was just for the juxtaposition. On one hand, we have the fierce Scottish politician going to the US Senate and eloquantly, but bluntly, calling them on their bullshit. On the other hand, we have the Big Brother contestant pretending to be a cat and licking milk out of some has-been entertainer’s lap.

    Beyond the cringe-inducing performance, I just thought, “Dude, weren’t you really cool six months ago?”

  3. plus, you realize he’s missing votes to be on big brother? he’s actually missing time in the house, because parliament is currently sitting. not to mention that none of his constituents can reach him while he’s in in the big brother house.

    not so clever, no.

  4. Good Gawd! That WAS one helluva juxtaposition. Nice work, John, though I must say I felt kinda manipulated. That testimony was an amazing slam, stirring my leftist blood, only to have the same blood go cold. I think I have a mild case of hypothermia.

    BTW, no post about THIS???

    I’m shocked!
