You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Just when you thought our government couldn’t get more brazenly hypocritical, Secretary of State Clinton issued the following statement to China this week on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Student Uprising:

A China that has made enormous progress economically, and that is emerging to take its rightful place in global leadership, should examine openly the darker events of its past and provide a public accounting of those killed, detained or missing, both to learn and to heal.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Why don’t we do it?

The Chinese must be snickering in their tea cups.

    Perhaps Hillary was slyly hinting that she'd like the U.S. government to take her advice.

  2. We as a nation have always had a problem looking in the mirror. While China has been far more brazen in its violations towards its people, our own behavior is not above reproach.Actually, in light of the fact that we need the Chinese to buy our debt, I'm surprised that Clinton was allowed to release that statement at all.

  3. P.S. Regarding the title of your blog entry, are you plagerizing me? I seem to recall having a couple of blogs with the title "You Can't Make This Stuff Up" a while back.Who do you think you are, Sarah Palin?

  4. Ha. I knew I heard it somewhere. I think this is the second or third time I've used this too. Sorry. I'll have my agent contact your agent to work out the royalties.
