You thought he was an ideological antisemite, but it turns out he’s just another greedy political hack

Such disillusionmnent about George Galloway:

Some 2,200 companies, including major concerns like DaimlerChrysler, Siemens and Volvo, made illicit payments totaling $1.8 billion to Saddam Hussein’s government under the U.N. oil-for food program, a report said on Thursday.

[ . . . ]

Among those named in the report as receiving oil vouchers that could be sold for a commission were British lawmaker George Galloway, former French U.N. Ambassador Jean-Bernard Merimee, former French Interior Minister Charles Pasqua and Russian ultranationalist leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky.

All those people who had been counting on Galloway to be motivated by genuine hatred instead of garden-variety greed should be weeping right now.

    Why cann’t he be both a greedy politician and a antisemite? The two are not mutually exclusive.
