#1 Mr Galloway might want to see if he's to be arrested, or subpeonaed (spelling?) for further questioning by the Senate before he goes gallivanting around the U.S. On the other hand, so long as he is gallivanting, he is still on American soil, and can easily be found if he is recalled for further questioning. An amusing little dilemma.

#2 All proceeding according to plan. Next: arrange for Galloway to speak in front of pro-Israel Democrat groups in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York, New Jersey and ask Hillary Clinton to join him on the stage.

#3 George Galloway, like Michael Moore, is a tax on ignorance. If people want to pay it, let them. Its no skin off my nose.

#5 I think it's time somebody looks into Ivy League Tyrant Supporters Speaking Tour and Money Laundering Conduit. This is just a system of paying legal bribes to those who support the overthrow of the US. Time to take a good look and shut it down.

#6 Does he have to pay taxes on that income in the U.S. as well as the U.K.? And if he doesn't, can the I.R.S. demand all of his financial records for the last ten years?

#7 Most excellent. What we want is for him to subject himself to jurisdiction in as many red states as possible. Also, encourage him to raise his right hand before taking the podium.

#9 Now, now, people. Please show some tolerance and enlightened thought when Galloway comes to this Evil Empire of ours to speak. He will undoubtedly draw piously enthusiastic crowds at such progressive venues as Berkeley and the Columbia chapter of Lesbians for Peace and Justice.
If he shows up in your community, please extend him every courtesy due a distinguished visitor, show our tolerance and enlightenment by listening patiently to his dissident but sincerely expressed views, praise him afterward for his sagacity and moral vision and ensure that he is the center of attention at the tasteful gathering of cognoscenti that will surely follow. Then hang him.

#10 Yeah! We've hung brits before, y'know.

Mostly Toffs, but what the hell. We're inclusive.

#12 "...Next day you couldn't hear nothing around that town but how splendid that show was. House was jammed again that night, and we sold this crowd the same way. When me and the king and the duke got home to the raft we all had a supper; and by and by, about midnight, they made Jim and me back her out and float her down the middle of the river, and fetch her in and hide her about two mile below town.

The third night the house was crammed again -- and they warn't new-comers this time, but people that was at the show the other two nights. I stood by the duke at the door, and I see that every man that went in had his pockets bulging, or something muffled up under his coat -- and I see it warn't no perfumery, neither, not by a long sight. I smelt sickly eggs by the barrel, and rotten cabbages, and such things; and if I know the signs of a dead cat being around, and I bet I do, there was sixty-four of them went in..."

#15 (Blushing) Many thanks TW. I think I learned that from reading British aviation mags when I was a kid. Characters like William Green and Bill Gunston are unknown outside the aero realm but they could have written for anyone (and Gunston still can at age 79). Bill Gunston, incidentally, is a great supporter of Israel. His first serious aviation job, and the adventure of a lifetime, was helping South African swashbuckler Boris Senior smuggle an amazing assortment of aircraft to the infant IDF in 1948. Early in the war of independence, Gunston flew a new Beech Bonanza from Johannesburg to Haifa, clear across Africa, and turned it over to the IDF. He made the final leg by the simple if outrageous expedient of filing a fake flight plan for Cyprus and landing in the enemy capital of Cairo to refuel. He was a Brit with a South African registered plane and the Egyptians apparently didn't suspect a thing. He then disappeared at wave top level and headed for Israel. The little plane was rigged with bomb racks and machine guns and was later shot down by Egyptian AAA.
