If there’s any “comic interlude” to be thankful for, it has been provided by YOU in this ridiculous editorial posted on your website today. George Galloway has become a hero throughout the world for his frank and unapologetic assault on those who would accuse him of crimes with little evidence to back it up.
You would think Senator Coleman would have realized that the Daily Telegraph in London was fined 150,000 pounds for making these same unfounded assertions against Mr. Galloway. The man is innocent until proven guilty and the English courts have ruled that no one has proven him guilty!p>Were it not so pathetic, you might be commended for your unfaltering apologies for the Bush Administration and the Republican Congress. Instead, you’ve brought nothing but ridicule on yourself and your publication br> — Brad Miller br> Holley, New York /p> p> It is not so much a contrast between the U.S. Senate “sedate” parliamentary style and the more rough and tumble British House of Commons (but certainly not House of Lords) style, it is more that Galloway made fools of Coleman and Levin. Coleman and Levin looked unprepared. This is what you get when you represent a deliberative body whose style is totally dependent on deference and is populated by puffed up windbags who rarely debate but typically get to deliver set pieces in front of cameras or microphones. An example of this lack of preparation was the assertion by Coleman that Galloway had met with Saddam Hussein “several times.” How can one blame Galloway for sarcastically correcting him? The Daily Telegraph — hardly a British left wing organ — has already lost a libel case on essentially the same grounds that Coleman’s committee is accusing Galloway. The Telegraph had documents — piles of documents — still they lost. What do you expect when you put amateurs up against a feisty debater? Part of Galloway’s success was that he feels no deference and can see through the pomposity of these Senators. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
