Cowboy Hill

Apparently not all self-evident truths are created equal. When Bush uttered them, he was an ignorant and arrogant cowboy making the world hate us. Hillary, however, has merely "startled" diplomats with a little blunt talk.

The topic that so raised eyebrows? Succession in NoKo. She didn't see what the big deal was:
Maybe this is unusual, because you are supposed to be so careful that you spend hours avoiding stating the obvious, but you know, that's just not productive, in my view," the secretary told reporters traveling with her.
You know you've fallen on hard political times when Hillary Clinton seems like the most candid and sensible government spokesman.
