So far, I’ve yet to be startled by anything in the leaks. In fact, my take on international politics is being validated.
Kim Jong Il is bat-shit crazy.
Angela Merkel is kind of boring.
Nobody likes Mr. Imadinnerjacket.
Vladimir Putin is hand-in-glove with the Russian kleptocracy.
Americans are in Pakistan and Yemen, calling in drone attacks on Al-Queda camps.
Afghani politicians are corrupt.
If any of that surprises you, you’ll be amazed to learn that
people in Cleveland don’t like Lebron James anymore;
Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds did take steroids, as did about 85% of all major league baseball players in the 1990s;
Hollywood is about to release a bunch of comic book hero movie sequels and they probably will suck;
the Cubs are unlikely to win the World Series. Ever.
Remember: you heard it here first!
