A "George" I can live with

from - Buck

George Galloway is basking in the glory brought on by his performance in front of a Senate committee that received the thrashing that it so richly deserved.

"I did a bit of sanction busting," he said, brandishing a cigar. "I smoked a Havana cigar just like this one. I smoked it inside the Capitol building, I even blew the smoke at the White House."

Here is a small snippet of his testimony and I highly recommend finding 47 minutes in your day to watch it all. Needless to say many members of the Senate were furious at his performance but as Lew says over on his blog it was probably because he refused to salute Caligula's horse.

If you can’t watch the video at least read the transcript.

There are times when the pure, unvarnished truth is told in the halls of government and when that happens it always goes over like flatulence in church. It very well may turn out that Galloway is a thief, a crook and a liar but he can sure hold his own against his fellow thieves, crooks and liars that make up government as we know it today
