Galloway's Speech

Mike Taylor writes on George Galloway's speeches as captured by MEMRI:

Does anyone remember Battlestar Galactica? A very bad television series about the future. The Earth is a peaceful united place and is ambushed by an alien "race" of robots called Cylons. The ambush is facilitated by a traitorous human, Baltar, who has hopes that the victorious Cylons will install him as viceroy over a subjugated Earth.

George Galloway reminds me of that Baltar creep.*

In a recent speech, Galloway,
Praises Bashar Assad,
claims that Syria is being framed for the murder of Rafik Hariri,
supports Hezbollah,
says that the Iraqi "resistance" is defeating the US,
quotes Mao Tse Tung,
labels Hugo Chavez a "hero" and
calls for the Arab nations to unite... presumably to defeat the Western powers of Great Britain and the United States.

All in one speech!

If Galloway weren't a "pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas"**, he might be dangerous.

At the very least, the VERY least, Galloway is a treasonous dog. Aren't there laws in Great Britain against seditious speech?

He also says one very strange thing:


"When Hitler was on the French coast and my country stood alone, when the Americans were watching the war on television before they joined it, we faced a violent foreign military invasion.


I wasn't aware that television was that widespread in 1940... a TV set in America retailed for $395 in late 1940. That's somewhere close to $4,500 dollars today. And we were still in a depression, despite all the wonderful alphabet federal programs that FDR invented.

I'm not sure if too many Americans were watching the beginning of WWII on television.

In any event, Galloway is deranged and seems bent on uniting the Arab world against his own country.

* No, I haven't memorized geeky sci fi TV series... the internet is great for looking up trivia.

** A chocolate chip cookie for anyone that can identify this quote!

Mark Reynolds answers (showing he either knows old movies or has access to the internet like Mike does):

The great and wonderful wizard of OZ – (Frank Morgan)

Mark has never seen a color movie.

From Mike:

You can redeem your cookie at our next meeting.

The full quote:

"Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma."

Mike's initial quote "pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas" was easily copied into a Yahoo search and ... voila! There it was a quote from the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The next hit was an entry in Wikkipedia on the poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" it seems that these particular words of the wizard were inspired by said poem (as were many other pop culture items: song titles, references in movies, etc.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Mariner
