I knew Donny would get a kick out of this, because he seems to be totally in tune with the crazy Belgian sense of satire. What a coincidence! The same day he made a joke on Greta Van Susteren's FOX News Program stating that a "trained ape" could do a better job as a diplomat than Barack Obama:
The Belgian Flemish language newspaper, Die Morgen published this picture of Barack and Michelle Obama on the eve of their visit to Belgium to commemorate the end of WWI.
They claimed it was "satire", but if you live in Europe and have had contact with Belgians, for the most part, except for the comic strip artists, they are not known for their sense of satire. The most apt comment I saw in defense of the picture included an un photoshopped picture of George Bush Jr.
Donny, move to Brussels. You'll knock em dead and it's just an hour on a high speed luxury train to The Hague, where they have a luxurious suite awaiting you in the Slobodan Milosevic wing of their facility....I heard there is actually a pool there with wheel chair ramps.....
I try to stay away from the NYTimes, but I read this today and in the context of Rumsfelds continuing descent into senility, in a historical context, this piece was pretty good in explaining that he never really had anything relevant to say in the first place.
