Ten minutes later it is brought out again (with diplomatgic bag stickers on it) and driven back to the Russian embassy. Ecuadorian ambassador heaves a huge sigh of relief, pours a large drink and orders the spare room fumigated.
    I'm sure the female staff at the Embassy wouldn't be all that upset if the crate fell off the truck into the Thames. Apparently he seriously creeps them out.

    Packing him off to Comrade Putin would be perfect. Vlad seems to be the new posterboy for morons across the political spectrum. Scratch a right winger and you'll find someone ready to jerk off over his 'manly' approach to invading & killing people. Scratch someone on the 'regressive left' and you'll find someone ready to tell you at excruciating length how he is just a victim of Western aggression (Clinton is a WARMONGER!!!!).

    He's like a Rorshach test for idiot Westerners.

      Assange was a hero to the left until he turned on them too.
      Beyond funny.
      Never a hero to me. I thought he was a dangerous egotist even before I knew he was a rapist. I've never felt the need to make excuses for his behaviour in any respect, even when it was to the detriment of people I might have disliked. Guess that makes one of us.

      I really am enjoying confirmation that virtually none of the right wing warriors here have even a shred of principle.

        Beyond funny.


        FACT OF THE DAY:

        Ted Kennedy secretly begged the Russians to intervene in the 1984 U.S. presidential election in his attempt to unseat President Ronald Reagan.

          The main problem with Clinton is demonstrative incompetence and blaming the Russian is a desperate attempt to deflect attention from the obvious. Trump is right her record is thirty years of incompetence.

            ....and now our right wing warriors are doing the same with Putin. The irony is utterly delicious. As I said, no principle, only expediency.

              Racial relations are worse than they have been in decades, the cold war has returned, the deficit during Obama's two terms has grown more than all the presidents before, we had a secretary of state who's incompetence made state secrets easily accessible, the Iranians are opening saying they won't abide by the nuclear deal, we have had 8 years of the least transparent administration, whistle blowers have been hounded by an administration in ways reminiscent of McCarthyism, the number of people living below the poverty level has increased, the number of gun related murders has increased in many democratic party cities, our colleges are in chaos, the number of people seeking employment grows, the number of terrorist attacks around the world seems to be growing, Assad is still in Syria, no progress has been made on the Palestinian issue, the Philippines are defecting to China, the Secretary of State joked about the death of our diplomats, Russia is still in the Ukraine, no progress has been made on Climate change, etc.

              Perhaps it is time for some competent administration to come along with some expediency. If you really think racism, misogyny, and social injustice are the most important problems we face you are insane. If you think the sex of a candidate is important you are a bigot, if you think the race of a candidate is important you are a racist, if you think the left represents liberal values you shouldn't be voting.

              If you don't understand that the pending economic crisis will destroy the most vulnerable members of society you are an idiot.

                'Our'?

                Wrong flag for that.

                If you believe that nonsense about Putin, I have a bridge to sell you.

                  He didn't get that material all by himself. His role at this point is simply to draw attention, the same principle as the pretty girl in the tight outfit drawing eyes from the 'magician's' hands.

                    Right board, however.

                    And if you believe Trump wasn't publicly hoping for Putin to hack Clinton then I've given you far too much credit.

                      John, I know that you don't like Trump and and I understand why. But you appear to support Clinton, this I don't understand. Can you give me some S/A?

                        He is the biggest international embarrassment of the two. If your wife still has family in the old country have her ask them. What do they think and opinions of these two. Here, Trump is a Facepalm with a shake of the head and a laugh.

                        I consider him to be the bigger danger to our country as well.

                        Why do you support a person that has dis the military, our fallen, there family's and the veterans? How can you support someone who's opinion bounces around more than a ping-pong ball. How can you support someone that only a few years ago raved about the Clintons as such fine people. How can you support someone that has such a high opinion of Putin. How about cutting taxes but giving more money to DoD, which is already over funded.
