Joe Biden: the fool speaks the truth

In medieval times, the king’s fool was often the only one who could speak the truth, but that in the guise of a joke.  Joe Biden is a little bit different.  Obama didn’t mean him to be the truth-speaking fool but, apparently, the guy can’t help himself.  AJ Strata caught him on TV today admitting that the stimulus was a scam.  Check out AJ’s post for all the details.

    To bring the analogy into current times, let’s consider the entire scam as if we were swabees. Instead of moping the deck, we keep getting tossed off of it.

    The irony of it all is Joe lives on the United States Naval Observatory.

    Sink or swim – hell no. Mutiny! I did not sign up for passage on a Ship of Fools.


    And..on the subject of fools, this one is a humdinger!

    British spy chief’s cover blown on Facebook

    LONDON (Reuters) –

    The wife of the new head of Britain’s spy agency has posted pictures of her husband, family and friends on Internet networking site Facebook, details which could compromise security, a newspaper said on Sunday.

    Sir John Sawers is due to take over as head of the Secret Intelligence Service in November. The SIS, popularly known as MI6, is Britain’s global intelligence-gathering organization.

    In what the Mail on Sunday called an “extraordinary lapse,” the new spy chief’s wife, Lady Shelley Sawers, posted family pictures and exposed details of where the couple live and take their holidays and who their friends and relatives are.

    The details could be viewed by any of the many millions of Facebook users around the world, but were swiftly removed once authorities were alerted by the newspaper’s enquiries.

    “There were fears that the hugely embarrassing blunder could have compromised the safety of Sir John’s family and friends,” the newspaper said.

    Publishing the story on its front page and the pictures on a double-page spread, the Mail on Sunday said the information “could potentially be useful to hostile foreign powers or terrorists.”

    It was the latest in a string of security blunders, lapses and leaks by British officials that have embarrassed the government of embattled Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
