Clueless Pundits

Vikram Sood, former Secretary, Research & Analysis Wing(RAW), India's external intelligence agency (it is frighetining that a person of such paranoid views - just read his articles - was in such a senior position. One may not know for a long time the damage he did)-

Why do I keep getting it wrong?

Four years ago, in May 2003 the Iranian authorities proposed a package deal to freeze their nuclear programme in exchange for an end to US hostility. The Iranians offered full transparency about their nuclear programme and full cooperation with the IAEA, on Iraq, terrorism and even material support to Hamas.

Never has one seen such class gracing the American presidency -

Obama Sits in Front Row and Chews Gum at Joplin Memorial Service

The MSM and the lefty blogosphere is either ignoring it or coming to Barry O's defense by such logic as -

We see their priorities in the face of a massive disaster.
What’s more important, chewing gum or the memorial service?
(from the comments)

or a variation of "What's wrong with chewing gum?", "When did it become criminal?"

Let us help our clueless lefty friends out.
Let's see if this is too difficult. We shall go over it word by word and slowly -
CHEWING      GUM      AT       A      MEMORIAL       SERVICE.

I hope something struck. Read it again if you will, again slowly. Hopefully, some more of it trickled in(or down).

Now let's continue, slowly of course and repeat if necessary (and you may consult a dictionary) -


There got it? Good for you even if it is beyond Barry O's grasp.

Clueless Pundits

Eminent Indian media person, Prem Shankar Jha-

What do I know?

The countdown to a massive aerial bombing of Iran, possibly using bunker busting nuclear weapons, has begun.

Did I say I'll be back?

My apologies for an unexpectedly long break. It was the combination of a holiday (loved it), indisposition (very fatiguing - felt all squeezed out like toothpaste run over by a truck) and above all a frustrating blogger's block (yes, there is such a thing) the size of Milky Way.

Anyway, the things will be settling down to normal soon or so I hope. Whatever normal was.

In the immortal words of Jim Carrey (Real audio file)-

"Did you miss me?"

No, no, don't tell!
