The Administration is evidently not helping matters. CNN reports that a Senior Administration official – perhaps the same one who told them John Snow was going, going, gone – told them that the Administration was upset and was conducting an internal investigation.
It's not that big a deal.
It would have been interesting to see the results of a poll of those Americans who knew who former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien was. It might have been something like: "Of those Americans who had heard of Chrétien, 15% were deeply concerned, 5% were favorably, and the remaining 90% replied that the Canadians can do what they want." (These "poll results" were invented. I know of no poll conducted of Americans regarding Chrétien.)
Clifford Arnebeck won't let it go. He can't let it go. Not, he says, while America refuses to recognize that John F. Kerry was elected president Nov. 2.We have a name for where his mind is: La La Land.
