WELL, the people have spoken. The b******s. That is how senator Dick Tuck in 1966, Illinois governor Adlai Stevenson in 1959 and even Ron Brown the Leither greeted the news of their electoral disasters.
But you won't hear that from me. It's true that the people of the west end of Glasgow chose the SNP's Sandra White - who from the winners' rostrum hailed her own "victorious victory" - over my old friend Pauline McNeill.
And that the city's voters prefered New Labour's Hanzallah Malik over me. Only when they come to know him will the full glory of that statement become clear.
It's ironic that he mocks the SNP candidate for her clunky English then proceeds to misspell "preferred", misspell the name of the Muslim MSP he's referring to (it's Hanzala Malik not Hanzallah Malik, or is this a deliberate tactic from libel suit veteran Galloway?) and then finish with a sentence that doesn't actually make sense (full glory of the statement that the voters preferred Hanzala Malik to him?).
Still, it does raise the intriguing question of what George Galloway knows about Hanzala Malik that we don't. As is well known, Gorgeous George is well plugged in to the goings-on in Mohammedan circles. But unless the Dundonian demagogue wants to grace us with further insights, we'll just have to wait with bated breath until the true character of the globular Mr Malik is revealed.
I have to confess I'm a little surprised that Muslim hero Galloway didn't praise the appointment of two new Muslim MSPs as a significant step forward for the global jihad to which he has dedicated much of his life. Personal bitterness trumps all, it seems.
