George Bush is to Osama bin Laden as ...

... Christopher Hitchens is to George Galloway. They perfectly reinforce each other's blunderbuss approach to political analysis, and each finds the other an incredibly useful brush for tarring all critics. Watch Hitch associate everyone opposed to the war in Iraq with Galloway. Watch him use unrelated corruption investigations (e.g. Chirac's activities when mayor of Paris) as evidence of corrupt motives in opposition to the war. If that's the game, Hitch, have you checked Halliburton's profits recently?
