Oh, Buy George!!

(And no, I didn’t misspell a damn thing.)

UK politician ‘received Saddam oil allocations’
More than $600,000 raised from allocations of Iraqi crude oil was deposited into accounts for the wife and campaign charity of George Galloway, the British member of parliament (MP), a Senate subcommittee investigating the Iraqi oil-for-food scandal alleged on Monday.
Documents, including wire transfers, as well as interviews with top officials of the Saddam Hussein regime show Mr Galloway “personally solicited and received lucrative oil allocations from the Hussein regime”, the committee alleged.

Last night it was just 85 grand in wifey’s account. This is a whole lotta crumpets more.
Galloway fans may see things differently once it all comes out. These are the same folks who gushed…

…What happened next was a rare political moment: to the surprise of the assembled senators, congressional aides, and press, Galloway turned the tables on his accusers, calling attention to the dishonesty and hypocrisy that led to the war in Iraq. This is the story of Galloway’s relationship with Saddam Hussein (including details of their private meetings) and of his remarkable visit to Washington in which he dared to set the record straight—not just his own record, but also that of the U.S. government. Filled with the passion and wit that are Galloway trademarks, the book includes the complete transcript of the famed Senate testimony and is packed with facts about the U.S.’s ignominious history in Iraq—facts that are easy to forget but crucial to remember.

…trying to peddle a book called “Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington”.
Nah. It’ll never happen. The capacity for self dillusion is strong in them, young Skywalker.
