Up for auction now is a copy of George Galloway's book, Mr. Galloway goes to Washington. Ordinarily, I'd tell you to steer as clear of that as humanly possible. But I actually want you to go to that auction, and bid on that book if you can. I'll tell you why in a minute.
If you don't know who he is, Mr. Galloway is best known for his socialist political leanings, his stance against the Iraq War, and his support of Muslim extremism. Here are a few of his greatest hits:
"Iraq is fighting for all the Arabs. Where are the Arab armies?"
"Saddam Hussein greeted me with a handshake, which, again to my surprise, is surprisingly soft considering how many people that hand had dispatched, allegedly. I think he's quite a forbidding presence, too forbidding a presence to be charming. But he's interesting."
(carbombers / terrorists) "are writing the names of their cities and towns in the stars, with 145 military operations every day."
Not a nice guy, Mr. Galloway, and a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Oh, and - surprise of surprises - a friend of Hanoi/Jihad Jane's as well!
So why exactly would I want you to visit this auction, to buy his book? Because in this case, the proceeds benefit "Adopt-A-Sniper (now renamed Americansnipers.org")
And the best part? Mr. Galloway gets a letter acknowledging his generous support of the organization, and you get a copy of the framed letter. Heh. I love irony.
The moonbats apparently like the auction enough to "martyr" their eBay accounts in an attempt to derail the auction; the bidding was jacked up to almost $10,000,000 - but that problem has been solved, and the auction is humming along.
I found out about this auction via email from a person claiming to be the auctioner. I'm working on verifying that. Here is a bit of the info I received:
So it appears that there are two ebay users, lucylola1982 and jayjaychef75 aka chef185 who appears to be from the UK, are not only sending me endless streams of hate mail for "having a charity to support people who kill women and children for a living", they've bid almost 10 million dollars, that's right, and admitted that its purpose is to derail the auction by not paying. Not only have they found my auction "disgusting", which is quite the compliment coming from those who find suicide bombers as glorious, but they have also expressed to me their wish for every American and British soldier to find their end in Iraqi soil.
This is precisely why this auction exists. To take the words out of mouths of people like them - people who think themselves humanitarians, and have them blow a gasket upon realizing we just made them humanitarians.There bids will be retracted by ebay and their accounts probably "martyred". Upon entrance to heaven, they will be greeted with 72 ebay accounts of the feminine persuasion that have never been used.
You can read some of the warm remarks about the auction in its Q&A section!
So, I can't vouch personally for the seller, but I can say that a stop-over is definitely worth your while. The Adopt-a-Sniper program is indeed real. And I can't think of a better use of Mr. Galloway's book. Well, at least I can't think of a better use that doesn't involve a toilet, fire, or projectiles.....

UPDATE: I have been in touch with the seller, who says:
"I'm just a dude who bought the Galloway, whose girlfriend got it signed so we can raise money for an organization contrary to what Galloway spewed that night in NYC. We're going to give 100% to the organization in the name of the winner with credit to Galloway. And we'll make sure AmericanSnipers validates it."
