Stormin Norm ?

They say that when the police arrest a respectable member of society for some dreadful crime, his friends and acquaintances suddenly remember (and tell the police) all kinds of bad things about him.

"I always thought he was a bit strange"

"Remember when he .. ?"

But I still can't quite equate Norman Geras, cricket and country music lover, whose cogent and frequent condemnations of the kind of kneejerk anti-US leftism that calls Zarqawi and his head-choppers 'the resistance' are always made more in sorrow than in anger, with the "Stormin Norm" I read of in today's Sunday Times, 'toast of the neocons' and 'darling of the Washington right wing '.

On the other hand, when I think about it, I'm sure he posted about attending an Emmylou Harris gig with Richard Perle and Charles Krauthammer. And his love of country music must be suspect - the songs of the racist white oppressor. Look at that Merle Haggard's lyrics. I always thought that was odd. Remember when he sent out requests for the top 10 rock music singles ? I've deleted the email, but I'm pretty sure it ended with the words 'Bomb Iran Now !'

Turncoat ! Imperialist skunk !
