Afghans kick George while he’s down

Poor Galloway. After his crazed performance in New York last week, and Jane Fonda’s sudden decision to recover from hip surgery instead of joining him on tour, millions of Afghans had the nerve to defy the brave resistance to US occupation by voting Sunday in legislative elections.

“Today is a magnificent day for Afghanistan,” said Ali Safar, 62, standing in line to vote in Kabul. “We want dignity, we want stability and peace.”
Afghans clutching voter identification cards filed into schools with lessons still scrawled on blackboards or stepped over piles of shoes to cast ballots in mosques. Tents served as polling stations in remote areas.

The debate I’d really like to see is between Mr. Safar and Mr. Galloway.
