Call it the “brooch strategy for world domination.” It’s a bizarre fantasy of a really annoying, has-been woman who harmed America internationally, a decade ago, and is desperate to stay “relevant” and out there. I’m talking about Madeleine Albright’s silly new picture book, “Read My Pins: Stories From a Diplomat’s Jewel Box.” A better title: “Pinhead Diplomacy.”
I’ve never believed, unlike the conventional wisdom, that someone’s internal plumbing is cause for great praise and awe. And that includes when that plumbing becomes Secretary of State. Especially when the chick involved has a weird obession with believing that world leaders actually care about her jewelry. Here’s a hint: they don’t.
When she was picked as the first “female” U.S. Secretary of State, it was a bad omen. Including Albright, we’ve had three “female” Secretaries of State–all of them extremely liberal, very anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian, and all way out of their very shallow depth–disastrously so (not to mention all of them, quite masculine and not at all attractive). Yup, that includes Albright, Condoleeza “Condi Clueless” Rice, and, now, Hillary Clinton.
But now that we’re on our third inept, aging anti-Western ugliness in the State Department, it’s really no big deal that there’s a “woman” atop the America-hating offices at Foggy Bottom. And so, Madeleine Albright–with no claim to fame other than that she was a “woman” (only her Ob/Gyn doc knows for sure) and that she pretended she didn’t know of her Jewish heritage–has nothing left to brag about, no reason to keep her in the sun. And she craves attention, not to mention more high-paying speaking engagements from her Gulf State Arab Muslim buddies.
Therefore, this FoY (Friend of Yasser) has written a book about the 300 items in her brooch collection and how she believes these scared or disturbed world leaders with her stupid pins. The thing is, many of the pins are beautiful. The other thing is, guys–including world leader guys–are completely distracted from that when they notice the ugly, hateful mug wearin’ em, not the adornments surrounding it. Unless they’re gay . . . like a certain terrorist who died of AIDS.
Albright claims, among other inanities in her book, that she “Put It to Putin” with one of her silly pins, according to People, which calls her dumb jewelry collection, “A Diplomat’s ‘Arsenal.’” (Um, if that’s America’s arsenal, we’re in heap big trouble. If only that were Iran’s sole arsenal.)
[Albright] wore this “hear no evil, see no evil” set to protest the Russian president’s denial of atrocities in Chechnya. “He wasn’t happy.”
Does anyone really think Putin noticed her pins or cared? It’s more likely he wasn’t happy because he had to spend an extended period of time with a shrewish American ugly chick who wouldn’t shut up (the same ugly one who invited Arafat on a weekend peace talks “date” at her farm).
Shto Etoh Ugly Amerikanka? [What is this ugly American? Yes, "ugly" isn't a Russian word, but I added it for effect.]
I highly doubt Putin was afraid of or upset by this American visitor one iota. And BTW, his country was the victim of Chechnyan Islamic terrorist attacks (remember the Beslan massacre? Guess who did it? And yes, I know that took place much after Albright was SecState.). But his country has less of them and less plotters because they know that, unlike in America, the Russians use Putin-esque force. They won’t tolerate Islamic uprisings and don’t celebrate them by offering diversity training courses to kids and having them eat falafel “food of the world” during Ramadan for better “understanding” of these nice people and their tasty food.
This idiotette, Albright, also thought her multiple turtle pins showed the Middle East parties about her views on the pace of talks.
I had pins I wore at various points of the Middle East talks. Mostly I wore a lot of turtles because it was very slow.
Yes, this is how America should conduct foreign policy–pretend that terrorists like Arafat are reading your stupid pins and cowering in fear of another rhinestone encrusted turtle. Hilarious. How many homicide bombings at Sbarro Pizza (which happened when she was atop State) did her turtles stop?
Albright is delusional, even thinking that hardened Cuban communists, like Fidel Castro, cared about her pins, one of which apparently “said” something about Cuban Americans and freedom that she and her boss, Bill Clinton, didn’t have the guts or courage to actually say in public.
In 1996 Cuba shot down two small planes flown by Cuban-Americans. This antique pin “is a bird soaring up,” says Albright, “but I wore it head-down in honor of the fallen pilots.”
Big whoop–she wore a pin. Hey, Juanita, the Secretary of State is wearing her bird pin upside down, so our son’s death wasn’t in vain. Chairman Fidel, that American gringo seniorita is wearing her pin upside down. The Yankees are coming!
Earth to Madeleine: they didn’t notice your pins. And they didn’t care. Anyone who thinks otherwise is the very definition of a pinhead. Sadly, we’ve had three of those for Secretary of State. She started the trend.
G-d help us and please don’t give us a future Secretary of State who “communicates” with foreign leaders through underwear.
