And this is only the first act

We are early on in Mitt Romney’s trip overseas to show what a diplomat he is, and it’s gone really well…for the Obama Administration.  It takes a lot of thoughtless effort to get Boris Johnson over the irony of mocking you for being a dumb loudmouth.  But Mitt’s the man for the job.

And to think this is but the first leg.

Soon Mitt will visit Poland, a trip the seems to have the same comedic potential as the time Jimmy Carter let Billy translate for him.  Maybe he’ll criticize union movements?

And then it is on to Israel.  Now, one would think that will go okay because Mitt has already stated if he’s elected President Bebe Netanyahu will run his middle east policy.

And yet…here’s Mitt in April 2012:

Israel’s current prime minister is not just a friend. He’s an old friend.

But here is that alleged “old friend” this month:

“I remember him for sure, but I don’t think we had any particular connections,” he tells me. “I knew him and he knew me, I suppose.”

Well that could be awkward.

Leviathan and the Levers of Power



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
