i heart galloway

i've said it before and i'll say it again, the most desperate deficit in the canadian political scene is a voice like george galloway's. i missed this fantastic interview he did a few weeks back with a brave skynews journalist about the israel 'occupation' of lebanon, but better late than never in this case. george is so scandalously scathing, he once again made me tingle in private places. where the fuck is the galloway of canadian politics, i ask? not only is he provocative, brazen, and cheeky - he's Absolutely Right. we need an equivalent here, someone chock full of cred AND kahunas. omigod, we SO need a Leader. christ knows the liberal leadership hopefuls here have about as much personality between them as a madame tussaud's exhibit. and if jack layton is the best we've got, we best put him on the first jet to scotland for some serious media training with george. or maybe there's some kind of shunt procedure for Sheer Balls.

Yeah....a man who publicly praises Saddam Hussein.

We need more Nazi sympathizers in this country too.

reasoned analysis on controversial topics often comes off as praise for the wrong guy/side. i'll never forget the shitstorm that erupted around sunera thobani after she dared question american foreign policy less than a month after 9-11. questioning the approach of global bullies automatically paints you as pro-terrorist. a nuanced discourse we cannot have, sadly.

anyways, i love george for his chutzpah, and am no apologist for some of his wackier shit.
