Julian Assange of WikiLeaks loses appeal. Will be extradited to Sweden to face charges

You know, 40 years ago, an entire decade might go by without a sexual accusation or scandal. Profumo, anyone.

And nowadays, it seems like, well, only a day or two and there’s another ‘wide stance’ or another batch party hired dancer claim, or another this that or the other claim regarding body parts. And using those body parts, whether words from mouth, or bird from south, to… do something unwarranted.

No one can predict what will happen to/for Assange who is accused of rape and sexual intrusion on two women. But unlike Cain who has only served up some pizza, via Pillsbury his onetime and now defunct boss of Godfathers’, unlike others who have served up just average and sub-average legislative fare, including Newtie and Johny Edwards, and others who sort of forgot they were married, and very publically so, for a time… Assange really did rip a planetary hole in so-called intelligence across nations, making any hole in the ozone overhead look a little miniscule.

One thing for certain, Assange is the only one I can think of at the moment who could possibly be being persecuted unjustly in retaliation for doing a huge global strip show that embarrassed governments, corporate duffers and diplomats without regard for party or affiliation. Cain’s playing the role of ‘the injured lady who doth protest too much’, though louder and more shrill that Assange by far, is somehow less credibe. In part, or maybe mostly because Cain has done the b word: not brave, rather only boastful. And nowadays, predictibly boastful. All Cain needs to round it all out is a baby=adult showing claiming Herman is his /her father who abandoned him /her 25 years ago.

In both cases, we shall see what justice was served in Cain’s case of ‘the sexual harassment he ‘forgot’ because it was only 12 years and $35k ago in one case… and what justice has to say about the Assange charges….

  1. Oh Assnage has had no impact whatsoever on anything, other than promoting his own image. For example, what has been the impact of his exposure of those US diplomcatic cables? Zero. Or worse than zero, actually. Every con artist and conspiaracy nut case on the planet now makes use of obscure and boring cables from Dushanbe to make their case that the Kochs want to overthrow the Tajik government, or that Obama’s a secret Muslim, etc etc. I saw something hilarious in Kiev at the time of that blowhard’s arrest, a bunch of idiots protesting in front of the US embassy, carrying signs and shouting that when in Ukraine in 2006 Obama had raped two teenage girls. No, Assange is no hero, and from what I’ve read, a real douche and likely guilty of rape, albeit under Sweden’s very strict rape laws. I hope he does time, if not for rape, for being a pretentious asshole.

  2. Assange really did rip a planetary hole in so-called intelligence across nations, making any hole in the ozone overhead look a little miniscule.

    You are exactly correct on this one and a huge “planetary hole” it was.

  3. I like the offensive “non sexual” gesture that was listed as part of the complaint. I guess Herman Cain hit the jackpot on TMV today, I wonder if he’ll “gesture” TMV for the negative comments?

    Looks like the money keeps rolling into his campaign in spite of this “scandal”. It is interesting that the accuser is now a federal employee.

  4. Thanks Taylor, some of the docs that have been most interesting to me are those concerning the Vatican. I’m still plowing through various online.

    AndAllen I keep telling you, write the retrospective because you follow so closely. If you want to write on Cain or other, send it to me. For instance, write about the several reasons you think Cain story keeps bringing in contributors. Pull no punches.

    N: It will be interesting to see what happens in the court case of Assange.

    thanks all
