Galloway, hey, hey!

Ah, we were just the other day expressing our worries about the company that George Galloway keeps. But we, of all the contrarian sods littering the internet, should have known that the best way to define a man is by his enemies, and you don't get much more ennobled than by squaring off against the mind-bendingly unpleasant Senator Norm Coleman.

Coleman disgraces the memory of Paul Wellstone every time he draws breath, and exists solely to provide the Republican media with suitable misdirection material. Why the man is holding hearings on oil-for-food, a scandal that ended two years ago, and seems to have discredited everyone it touched, rather than on any number of continuing scandals in mystifying.

Good for Galloway, we have to say, for tearing Coleman a new one. We're still not sure we trust alll of Gorgeous George's record on Sadaam, and many of the other grand questions of the last fifty years, but he's with the angels here. From the Beeb:

"Now I know that standards have slipped over the last few years in Washington, but for a lawyer, you are remarkably cavalier with any idea of justice," the MP declared.

Plenty more in the article, and the whole episode has dismissed any misgivings we might have had about the nutritional value of Georgie's flight into "the Lion's den". He treated the tired conclave of hacks that is Coleman's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations with the respect it derserved. Glorious. Now p*ss off and investigate something useful.
