WikiLeaks Reduced

Roger Simon and a dozen Sea World dolphins have reduced the entire WikiLeaks quarter million document dump into the easily understood undiplomatic absurd.

Sarkozy likes himself.
Angela Merkel is boring.

Hillary thinks Cristina needs a shrink.
Benjamin Netanyahu can’t stand Ehud Olmert.
Al Qaeda hates America.

America needs a new president.
Things really haven't changed much since 1967 when Tom Lehrer sang "National Brotherhood Week" -

That sounds like the foundations for a good afternoon soap opera.

Indigo Red said...

A truer thing has ne'er been said, the whole world is a stage and all must play a part.

I do not mind playing a part but I wish I could get a little applause once in a while. Don

Louise said...

Sounds like the "new president" is just the role for you, Don.

Indigo Red said...

Ah, yes, Don. The smell of the crowd and the roar of the greasepaint. Nothing better. Well, maybe freshly bake bread with butter and raspberry preserves is better.

Indigo Red said...

So true, Louise. Small ego people stay away from big office.

I think I would probably make a crappy president but sometimes I yearn for just a common man or woman who just uses common sense instead of plotting for maximum political mileage. No runon sentences here nosiree. Don

Indigo Red said...

Just a comma after president and the problem is solved. How's that for comma sense. Cue Fanfare for the Comma Man...

Hate to admit it, I think Assange may have done everyone a favor. We now see how banal diplomacy is, that it is not for the faint hearted, it's hardball to the point of blood sport, and everyone plays to win. No one involved is the without filth on their hands; no one can possibly come clean while playing the great game.

The leaked cables show very clearly that rather than America being the great international robber baron, we have consistently refused requests and demands by the less civil to kill parties or countries which may pose a threat or simply annoy.

Let's also not forget it was WikiLeaks and Julian Assange who released the Climategate papers that proved the whole of GWOT was a farce designed in toto for profiteering by the likes of Al Gore. So far, no one has shown Assange has been remunerated in any way beyond the fame craved by all street performers.

America needs a new president.

Yep.

Gotta say it: These Wikileaks have done the people a favor. Quite the expose of the elitists at the top, i.e., those governing us right now.

Indigo Red said...

I find it very interesting that none of the leaked cables are before Jan '09, the Obama admin start. He had promised an open information presidency. The largest dump has been from the State Dept under Hillary Clinton. She had lost the presidency nomination to Obama. She, too, had promised an open administration and after appointment to State, she promised an open data State Department. I wonder how much, if any, official cooperation was involved and was it revenge from one to the other.

When my boys were little and had wicky leaks, I just changed their diapers. Don

Indigo Red said...

Depends now days.

Louise said...

Who wants to change Julian's diapers. Not me.

Louise said...

So tell me, how are countries supposed to develop their foreign policies without these kinds of insider observations from their diplomatic corp?

Does our dear Julian have any clue?

Louise said...

I can't help but smirk at the idea of a soap opera with a Hillary character. HEHEHEHEHEHE

Philandering husband. Unbridled ambition. Bitch slapping galore.

It would almost be worth it to set up my TV again and tape every episode.

Louise said...

"When my boys were little and had wicky leaks, I just changed their diapers"

Don, I nominate that as the best comment on this whole affair yet. Hard to beat.

Indigo Red said...

Thanks for the image of changing Julian's diapers, Louise.

Louise said...

Hope you can sleep tonight.

Apologies, if you can't.

Louise said...

Baby shit is the worst kind.

Indigo Red said...

I'll just take a happy pill and everything will be OK.

Louise said...

Come to think of it, Don, if you're yearning for a little applause and you only want to "play the part", how 'bout we cast you in the role of the current pres?

I would be a smash hit as long as the teleprompter kept working. Don

TOTUS, TOTUS, TOTUS is the new Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.
