The sick-making Mr. Galloway

Here are his latest thoughts on the Iranian election and its tumultuous aftermath. Galloway offers his version of the pernicious cliché (he sneers at “the English speaking more liberal elites now on the streets demonstrating” and writes “This election almost mirrors the class composition of the recent polls in Venezuela. President Hugo Chavez has exactly the same friends in his country. And the same enemies.”). And he smugly predicts the outrage expressed by millions of Iranians “will soon fizzle out” as President Ahmadinejad embarks on a triumphant second term.

Well, George, Dr. Ahmadinejad’s finest are out on the streets as I write, doing all they can to make sure your prediction comes true.

A message to the brave people of Iran: add this to your list of reasons to keep on fighting.
