Hitchens on Galloway

Excellent piece by Christopher Hitchens on George Galloway's publicity triumph last week:
[T]here struts a little popinjay who defends dictatorship abroad and who trades on religious sectarianism at home. Within a month of his triumph in a British election, he has flown to Washington and spat full in the face of the Senate. A megaphone media in London, and a hysterical fan-club of fundamentalists and political thugs, saw to it that he returned as a conquering hero and all-round celeb. If only the supporters of regime change, and the friends of the Afghan and Iraqi and Kurdish peoples, could manifest anything like the same resolve and determination.

Hitchens gives a good summary of Galloway's misdeeds. Please read it.
