Maybe They Really Are the Ones They’ve Been Waiting For

“We worked hard to get the right Russian word,” Mrs. Clinton said, handing the button to Mr. Lavrov. “Do you think we got it?”

“You got it wrong,” he replied, explaining that the Americans had come up with the Russian word for overcharged.
The Obama Administration is proving itself to be composed of incompetent amateurs. Not only can’t they figure out simple diplomatic protocol, the gestures of exchanging appropriate gift that predate the Caesars, they can’t seem to find a Russian translator. More to the point, their executive types even try using lame, cooked-up PR analogies in international relations: “resetting” this and that with bodies like the Kremlin or Damascus who simply don’t budge – ever, let alone “reset” relations.

Loony, unintelligable throw-away lines about we being the ones we have been waiting for aside, just what is it that they CAN do if the answer is the equally cryptic “yes we can”? Write advertizing taglines? Write haiku on Twitter? Waste humanity's oxygen?

The donkeys really don’t seem to have a clue as to what they’re doing, but keep in mind that if you report news for a living, you aren’t permitted to say that, or even point out the hypocrisy of their election tirades for that matter.
