Information Landmine

"The Americans keep telling us how successful their system is. Then they remind us not to stray too far from our hotel at night." - An un-named EU trade representative quoted during international trade talks in Denver, Colorado, 1997.

Suddenly, It All Makes Terrible Sense

So, there Information Landmine was, mulling over the ridiculousness of the McCain campaign's half-assed effort to bring Sarah Palin up to speed with foreign policy by putting her through a whirlwind session of meeting seven sympathetic Heads of State in the course of 48 hours at last week's opening of the UN General Assembly, when suddenly it all clicked into place:

Of course we've seen this before!

Our shocking-but-all-too-logical conclusion: McCain, inspired by Rex Harrison's iconic performance as Professor Henry Higgins, has a bet going with his cronies down at the VFW hall that he can take a simple, unsophisticated backwoods girl and, with only 60 days of intensive tutelage, pass her off to all and sundry as a bona fide world-leader-in-waiting.

So far, however, it's not fooling anyone outside of the usual yahoos from the "family values" crowd. "Professor" McCain, it would appear, has a lot more work to do.
