Ba'athist blowjob George Galloway offers his considered opinion on today’s events:

Ex-Labour MP George Galloway, expelled from the party in a row over the war, said it would not stop Iraqi resistance and might even "inflame" it.

Speaking from Egypt, he told BBC News 24: "It might be seized upon by the Prime Minister as something to laugh about, but I very much doubt if it will be the last laugh, because the truth is the country was taken into the war on the basis of a lie."

Halliburton! Fake turkeys! Quality Street chocolates! In related glass-half-empty news, here’s a Reuters headline: "Saddam’s capture is major coup, may not end unrest."

Oh, who the hell cares about Galloway or Reuters any more? This news is absolutely fantastic, there is absolutely nothing any of the above morons can do or say that will ruin this moment, this is absolutely terrific.

Check out the "even as..." at the beginning of the second paragraph.

He thinks it will 'inflame' the resistance?

I suppose next he'll tell us the brutal Iraqi summer will also be followed by the harsh Iraqi winter?

Loved Barney Cam II: Barney Reloaded. Karl Rove, in shadows, except for the glowing Christmas tree lights he was tangled up in, and hollering for Barney's help, was excellent.

This has got to be the second worst day of his life.
