Mulligans: Sarah Palin and the WikilLeaks terrorists

By Dana Milbank

It was hardly a revelation to say that Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has a "penchant for partying hard," as it was put in one of the U.S. diplomatic cables released as part of the WikiLeaks dump. But Berlusconi felt the need on Monday to deny the "wild parties" allegation. "Everything takes place in a proper, dignified and elegant way," he said. And the prostitutes and underage girls will back him up on that.

Assange bin Laden? Sarah Palin has a recommendation for how the United States should handle WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. "Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?" she asked in a Facebook posting. Nothing like a drone attack on European capitals to repair U.S. diplomacy.

George Soros, the liberal billionaire who has been behind many get-out-the-vote efforts for progressive causes, is having trouble getting his own vote counted. A Republican assemblyman in Westchester County, New York, where Soros voted by absentee ballot, is trying to have Soros's ballot tossed during a recount.

Nadia Macri, 28, said she was personally called by Berlusconi, 74, and invited to a “bunga bunga” party he was hosting, and how he described himself as "the dream of all Italians." With that pick-up line, how could she resist? Or maybe it had something to do with the $15,000 she got for her “services.”

So Berlusconi can have his way with young women, lie about it, and all Italians still think he’s their “dream” prime minister? When he heard this, Bill Clinton said that Italy was his “dream country.”

Great minds DO think alike. I beat you to the “send in the drones” quip by about an hour. This is from my comment on Petri’s last column:

If Sarah Palin thinks telling the truth is an act of terrorism, that certainly explains a lot! I look forward to the day when President Palin’s “death panels” send the Predator drones over Sweden in 2013.

Poor George Soros! First Glen Beck calls him a Nazi, and then Republicans say he has no right to vote. I even heard that last week Beck asked Sarah Palin, "Why was he not pursued with the same urgency we pursue al Qaeda and Taliban leaders?"

"If Sarah Palin thinks telling the truth is an act of terrorism, that certainly explains a lot! I look forward to the day when President Palin’s “death panels” send the Predator drones over Sweden in 2013.

The "death panels" have been confirmed.

They are not Sarah Palin's. They belong to the Obama Care Health Plan.

Might want to check your facts before posting.

Speaking of fact checking: by his own account, in his own books, written by him, George Soros did work for the Nazi's. He helped them capture Jewish people, and their property.

It's a fact and Soros does not deny it. He is the one who made it known.

Research can save one from a multitude of embarrassments.
