Louis wrote about Galloway's delivery, and it was impressive indeed. Shortly 
after watching him, I watched CondoLIEzza Rice speaking somewhere (I think 
Iraq, it doesn't matter) and she was hemming and hawing and hesitating 
before every word or phrase. It's important to understand that the 
distinction doesn't JUST reflect a better speaking ability on Galloway's 
part, or training. What it reflects is that Galloway doesn't have to think 
about what he's saying, because he is speaking the TRUTH, whereas Rice, just 
like her boss Bush, has to choose her words very carefully, because most of 
what she says consists of LIES, and she has to be very careful not to make 
them too obvious or too contradictory of something she might have said the 
day before. She has to be careful to phrase everything in such a way that it 
can have the semblance of the truth, while still being a lie, just like when 
her boss Bush told the world that he "didn't have any plans for the invasion 
of Iraq on his desk," he was probably telling the truth, because he really 
had them on his credenza, something I have termed 
the "credenza defense".

It's a lot easier to speak when you're speaking the truth.
