Galloway comments rescued from the memory hole

As I mentioned in my earlier post, EU Referendum has a great piece on Galloway. I particularly like this observation:
There he was, certain of having won his battle with the Senate Committee, simply because he used his normal bully boy tactics of shouting, abuse and refusal to tell the truth to the senators' courtesy. The journalists loved it. A great circus performance.
Here's what a few on the left had to say about Galloway's perjurious testimony before the Senate.

Brad Friedman:
Not since attorney Joseph Welch confronted the soon-to-fall Anti-Communist Crusader/Idealogue, Joseph McCarthy in 1954 with his now famous "Have you no sense of decency, sir?" testimony can we recall such a direct shaming of a Congressional Committee as that which took place earlier today in a Senate Subcommittee Hearing on the trumped-up U.N. Oil-for-Food "scandal".
Daily Kos:
George Galloway is a member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow and stands (falsely) accused by conservative US senators of taking bribes from Iraq in an oil-for-food scandal. His statement before the US Senate is a truly righteous, withering, and devastating critique of the US position in Iraq.
The New Patriot:
British legislator George Galloway ran Norm Coleman around in circles Thursday. Galloway spared no one, especially are very own Normy, who could only muster a squirmy smile in the face of such a barrage. At least someone put the lie to Coleman's stupid posturing. Coleman obviously picked on the wrong guy to shore up his transparent attempt to advance his career by pounding the UN-is-a-bogeyman drum.
And my personal favorite, the prescient
Galloway may be dirty, but he's still my hero.
