Galloway's Day

FrankWarner posts, with lots of comments, on the Galloway interview in the Senate. Galloway mocked the Senators by paraphrasing the old HUAC loyalty oath, implying that they were nothing more than red-baiters. The British do not approach this sort of thing the way we do. They are very combative, out front and mildly impolite as a rule. US Senators, on the other hand, tend to be guarded and extremely polite, handing out rope and encouraging their victim to take as much as needed.

George Galloway enjoyed his opportunity to harangue us, but the Senate just wanted to get him on record. I remember a few years ago when they were patiently and politely interviewing a few individuals ... what were their names, ah yes, Dean, Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, Colson, McGruder? Is that right?

BBC has a video of GGG's day in the sun. The British reporter seems to believe that Galloway scored at least a modest victory. I think it remains to be seen.

Who knows, we could all be wrong. Maybe it's a fabrication by the VRWC to discredit him. That's been done before, but why Galloway? He didn't have that kind of clout. I think he's just arrogant enough to mock the constable while sitting on the loot.

UPDATE: The complete session is here.
