I'm sorry but I'm just not feeling the outrage over the latest Wikileaks.
Thanks to Gawker we've got some US Embassy gossip...and it has made our day.
Libyan President Mumammar al-Qadhafi apparently keeps a "voluptuous blonde" Ukranian nurse named Galyna Kolotnytska at his side at all times. According to one cable: "the Libyan Government sent a private jet to ferry her from Libya to Portugal to meet up with the Leader during his rest-stop. Some embassy contacts have claimed that Qadhafi and the 38 year-old Kolotnytska have a romantic relationship. While he did not comment on such rumors, a Ukrainian political officer recently confirmed that the Ukrainian nurses 'travel everywhere with the Leader.'" The cable says Kolotnytska is always with Qadhafi because "she alone knows his routine." Imagining this routine is the mental equivalent of the nuclear bomb Libya was trying to build in the early 2000s.
I'm always fascinated with news of my favorite Libyan as an honorary member of the Qadhafi tribe.
Qadhafi also uses botox, which is obvious because of how beautifully taut his skin is.
And, I'm glad to read that cousin Moo is keeping up his appearance with botox.
And then we get this.
Kim Jong-Il was described by a diplomatic source as a "flabby old chap." That's mean. So the guy has curves? We're so sick of unrealistic body expectations for unhinged dictators.
Doesn't all that flab make him easier to target?
And then back to Africa, which is always funnier than a barrel full of monkeys.
Idiotic Zimbabwean dictator/president Robert Mugabe is an idiot. So says a former U.S. ambassador to Zimbabwe in a cable! Mugabe sucks as a leader because of "his deep ignorance on economic issues (coupled with the belief that his 18 doctorates give him the authority to suspend the laws of economics, including supply and demand)." Oh, you did not just go there: In Zimbabwe people have been disappeared for insulting just one of Mugabe's doctorates.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing good to say about Assange, and his hacker sidekicks. And quite frankly I'm surprised to that he has gotten this far.
But our world is teaming with dictators who need to be taken down a notch or ten
and I'm glad that the US Diplomatic officers can at least be honest about these tyrants in their internal communications because they are horny, fat and idiotic...and so much more.
