Who needs enemies with friends like George Galloway?

Galloway defends Assange as offensively and stupidly as possible.

H/T Johann Hari.

What an asshole. When you start off your first sentence with 'feminist' and 'rape charges' in scare quotes, there's nowhere to go but down.

PS, I have it on good authority that George Galloway is hiding Saddam's W.M.D's up his ass; at first it was in the name of friendship. Now it's just a comfort issue.

Oh jesus. I couldn't even keep reading after the first few paragraphs. What a disgusting man he is.

Although generally associated with the political left, Galloway is becoming increasingly strongly identified with socially conservative positions, & has recently become preoccupied with defending the RC Church from all criticism (squeezing it into a piece about Assange was just bizarre).
