Life Imitates Art: Mary Landrieu Calls Pavel Astakhov an ass; Then files bill to speed up international adoption
I came across a good article and actually the only article that I have found that addresses the issue about what I read myself at RFE/RL. I had thought about an article on Windows to Russia and then as I thought, I saw this article and realized that Marley Greiner, at The Daily Bastardett did a sufficient job, Thank you Marley…
Last week, Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) , in an interview with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty called Russian Children’s Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov, who supports Russia’s refusal to re-open its child coffers to needy American paps, an ass. And it wasn’t satire.
To make sure RFE/RL knew this just wasn’t a slip of her sloppy political tongue, Landrieu reiterated:”He doesn’t want to hear the truth,” the senator says. “He’s an ass. You can write that: He’s an ass!” And RFE/RL did just that.
Despite the impeccable US news source , no other US media picked up Landrieu’s insult to a high ranking member of the Putin government, and so far only the English language edition of RIA Novisti has published the account (though it may appear in the Russian language press.)
Russian or English language tweets make no note of the outburst. Does Bastardette have to do Drudge’s work?
