News reports indicate that incumbent Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman’s lead over “comedian” Al Franken has slimmed to a mere 5 votes. A canvassing board undergoing a recount is deciding whether to count previously discounted ballots.
Though I am no fan of Franken and his condescending, pop-liberalism, Norm Coleman is a major stiff. I wonder if he is squirming in his chair as badly during the recount as he did when George Galloway verbally shattered him in a 2005 Senate hearing. Coleman is an intellectual Mr. Glass.
Watch the video of Galloway dancing on Coleman’s head when you are feeling pathetic, because it will let you feel better about yourself.
The Senate was investigating the corruption around the UN’s Oil-for-Food program (what a perfect title for US ambitions in the Arab world). Coleman accused Galloway of having financial ties with Saddam Hussein. This show was just another example of the US ignoring the true crime — the murder of over one million Iraqis by the sanctions regime — because it implicates its own culpability.Filed Under 2008 elections, american politics, dickheads, iraq, Will
