and in this corner, wearing the white hat...

Oh, how I wish I could see this!
Not since the Rumble in the Jungle, when Muhammad Ali fought George Foreman in Kinshasa in 1974, can there have been such an eagerly anticipated punch-up as the one due to take place in New York in a fortnight.

Now THAT piqued my interest. Wonder who is fighting?


The Grapple in the Big Apple will pit "Gorgeous" George Galloway, the MP, against Christopher Hitchens, the writer and polemicist, in a public debate over Iraq and US and British foreign policy. Political junkies in America are drooling at the prospect.

Yes, this certainly has me drooling, like one of Pavlov's dogs! Sounds like a fine heavyweight bout, to me. I'm left wondering if it will degenerate into a spirited name-calling match. Can Mr. Hitchens match "drink-sodden former Trotskyist popinjay" ?

(Thanks to Dave Budge for the link, he's earned a spot on my blogroll!)
