What a great way to start the morning...

New (and apparently stronger) allegations that British leftie MP and anti-war pin-up George Galloway did receive Oil-for-Food money...Apparently the US Senate committee led by Norm Coleman has found the paper trail and it has been corroborated by Tariq Aziz (with whom Galloway had met on one of his junkets to the Middle East). Galloway has been actively defending himself against these allegations while attacking Bush and Blair across the world...this time his defense looks, well...Indefensible.

Kudos to Norm Coleman...I have the sad feeling that without him so much of this Oil for Food scandal business would have been swept under the rug...the media absolutely refuse to cover it.

PS...Galloway and Chris Hitchens have been going at it for some time...check out this coverage of a debate between the two. I highly suggest watching the video coverage linked at the end of the article (Hitch probably offers the best defense of the Iraq war).

This will barely get covered by any major news sources my guess is.

My comment is in regards to Norm Coleman. Everytime I see this guy's name he is doing something that clearly furthers conservative principles. He is a leading force in the new gun protection laws, he is a fervent pro-lifer, he always is leading the anti-pork campaign. He also happens to be from an independant state that could be in contention.
I don't know enough about him, and don't think he is a big enough name to run in '08, but would be a great choice as Senate Majority leader when Frist leaves.

Yeah I really do like Coleman...I think he and Jim Talent are the future of the Senate and are both people to which we can agree with ideologically.

Seriously though-watch the debate if you haven't...it will remind you of the good ol' days.
