Video: Constable George Galloway arrests “Tony Blair”

posted at 4:47 pm on February 27, 2007 by Allahpundit

Here’s the latest devastatingly effective peace initiative, brimming with the usual grotesque buffoonery and celebrity cameos, from the merry moralizers in the anti-war left. (Alas, no papier-mache puppets.) What’s more repulsive: casting a terrorist apologist who’s morally sanctioned Blair’s assassination as a police officer; setting the concert on a rooftop in a shameless act of Beatles desecration; or hyping this dreary cover to the point where it might actually crack the UK Top Ten this week?

Actually, the most repulsive thing is the fact that Galloway’s partner is played by Lauren Booth, half-sister of Cherie Booth, a.k.a. Mrs. Tony Blair. What’s a little family humiliation if it means screen time with Gorgeous George, eh?

Yawn, … it’s been done before.

That was terrible, but it was still better that Springsteen’s version.

I can’t watch it where I am now, but it looks like it’s just itching to be sped up and set to Yakety Sax.

I have the mp3 should an aspiring filmmaker be interested.

Typical self-absorbed British left. Sending a text to make themselves feel better. And ruining a perfectly good soul song to boot.

Realllly stupid.

I want my 4 or 5 minutes back

Why does the phrase “arrested on charges of impersonating a police officer” leap to mind?

Not much humiliation for Mrs. Blair, though. She was against Mr. Blair’s alliance with the U.S. on the Iraq war and is generally more of a sozi than him.

This is why I admire him so – he went against the will of his people, his party, Europe, and his wife, the latter never to be ‘misunderestimated’.

Iraqi civilian death: estimated 49,000 to 655,000

Calculated by a Global Warming Scientists in their spare time, no doubt.

I like the factoid that states the number of Iraq civilians killed since the war started: “Estimates Range From 49,000 to 655,000.”

That’s a pretty wide-ass range for a mere estimate.

Lame. Like their message. Easily ignored.

lamest.video.ever.

ever.

Well, at least he’s not wearing spandex this time.

George Galloway = Dingbat, British style.

Where’s Benny Hill when you need him?

Lawrence on February 27, 2007 at 7:46 PM

The lead singer is the strangest looking dude I’ve ever seen. Is he human?

Iraqi civilian death: estimated 49,000 to 655,000

According to the Cindy Sheehan Dictionary

“Civilian”: al Qaida; Hezbollah; Freedom Fighter, Revolutionary, Terrorist, Gang Member, Baath Party member, Dictator, Tyrant, Thug, Murderer, Rapist, Satan

I smell an Emmy……, maybe even an Oscar?

PinkyBigglesworth on February 27, 2007 at 9:27 PM

What will they be singing when the jihadists start suiciding bombing all over the UK?? Cindy Sheehan will fly over and help them along with the Gorebots and moonbats and nutroots I am sure. The Dems will sit back and still debate if there is any terrorism in the world. yada yada yada
