People losing their damn minds #15

As if we didn't know already, Gorgeous Boy rides the outer-reaches of insanity once again. I'm not thinking so much of his recent rantings about the assassination of Blair being justified. This, proving too much even for the StWC, is surely just the latest grotesque manifestation of his unquenchable thirst for publicity. There is, as David T suggests, something pornographic about the antics of this shameless self-publicist and like a pornographer, he has to produce ever more lurid and explicit works to retain the attention of his groupies who consume this filth.

Rather, I was thinking of his recent embrace of Fidel Castro. Lost his damn mind, without a doubt - and it isn't just me that thinks so. Here's one from the Stumbling one's archives:
"A prominent politician yesterday told the world that he was suffering from a psychological illness. George Galloway claims - according to top political correspondent Davina McCall - that the greatest man he's ever met is Fidel Castro.

Now let's ponder this. As an MP, Galloway will have met tens of thousands of people: war heroes, fighters of oppression around the world, voluntary workers, teachers, doctors, intellectuals. And, greater than any of these, he claims, is a petty tyrant. Worse, a petty tyrant who seems to have learnt nothing since the early 1960s.

What sort of person thinks that greatness consists in oppressing one's fellow humans, and in imposing one's ego onto them, rather than in trying to understand the world, or to make small improvements to one's little platoon?
The Independent records the point where pornography meets madness:
"Mr Galloway shocked panellists on a live television discussion show in Havana by emerging on set mid-transmission to offer passionate support for Castro. Looking approvingly into each others' eyes, the pair embraced."
Truly sick-making. Assassinating Galloway wouldn't be justified but surely we still have some laws that are supposed to uphold standards of taste and decency? Children might be watching, after all.

Galloway: Lost his damn mind and ugly. On so many different levels.

Update: Hak Mao has a piccy of the touching scene. Strong stomach needed.
