Move over Pat Robertson ...

... here comes George Galloway.

The Respect MP George Galloway has said it would be morally justified for a suicide bomber to murder Tony Blair.

In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"

Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."

Of course the Left will scream "But Pat Robertson actually called for [Venezuela President] Hugo Chavez's assassination! Galloway isn't doing that!" OK, OK, that's a semi-fair point, but does anyone really think this same Left would be placated if Robertson had phrased his statement like Galloway -- something like "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order of socialism's historical record. It would be entirely logical and explicable"??

I don't.

I agree with Galloway, with one addition. Let's impeach Blair and Bush, and then publicly execute them. THAT would begin to exact revenge for the war in Iraq.

Well, impeaching them is only half the process, but like too many non-civics educated folk, that's not surprising you didn't know that, Susan. They'd have to be convicted following impeachment in order to be subsequently executed.

I thought the Left by and large was against the death penalty! Oh wait -- is this the same Susan that is in favor of forced abortions?? No wonder.

When I first saw your headline, I assumed someone claimed to have leg-pressed more than 2000 pounds.

Susan, what crime has Bush committed that justifies impeachment?
