George Galloway — Saddam’s bestest pal in the Brit parliament — has always loudly (and, in the U.S. Senate, under oath) denied he’s ever taken a dime from Saddam’s regime. Unfortunately for Loud George, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations has found a pile of paperwork that contradicts his testimony. They have documents which they believe prove that Galloway and his politics were bought by Saddam.
Last night, according to a London Times report, the Senate PSI — headed up by Norm Coleman (R-MN) and Carl Levin (D-MI) — has referred Galloway’s statements to the Justice Department for a formal investigation. Galloway boasts long hard and continuously that he’d like to face such charges in the U.S. and use the forum to destroy any remaining support for the Iraq war. Let’s hope this case isn’t passed to another “special” prosecutor. The regular teams (especially the one in the Southern District of New York) have a lot of experience with the UN Oil-for-Food-for-Bribes-for-Weapons scam, for which Galloway may be the poster boy. Let’s hope the indictment comes soon. Seeing Galloway doing the perp walk in Manahattan would, I’d guess, be as pleasant for us as for his weary opponents on the other side of the Pond.

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?
