The American Embassy in Pakistan battens down under siege. The prime minister of Iraq, thought to be an American ally, beats the dead horse on which the infamous video rides.If only there weren't bad people doing bad things - here and abroad - what a wonderful president Mr. Magic would be.
Protests and demonstrations shut down a U.S. Consulate in Indonesia. Crowds in Afghanistan chant “death to America” (when they aren’t killing American soldiers.)
But serenity is the rule in Washington. The president prefers life in his bubble, where he can survey the world as he imagines it is, eager to hear another speech, rather than the world as it really is, full of bad people on their way to the mosque and keen to kill, maim and dismember Americans to please Allah.
If only Israel would behave and the First Amendment disappear. Peace and love would envelop us all.
