George Galloway has the most amazing ability to see the best in everyone - even homicidal dictators like Saddam

Anthony Andrews in the Guardian today:
"In his autobiography, I'm Not the Only One, George Galloway closes with a rousing quote from Nikolai Ostrovsky: 'All my life and all my strength I have given/To the finest cause in the world;/ The liberation of humankind.' Galloway introduces Ostrovsky simply as a 'Russian writer'. In fact, he was Ukrainian, but more importantly he was a Soviet propagandist, author of the socialist realist classic How the Steel Was Tempered, and a devoted Stalinist."
