Hey Look!

Not over there, not at Iraq. Look! International trafficking of women! Hey! I said stop looking at Iraq. Look! No, seriously. Look. Over there! No, stop looking at Iraq! There’s a communist dictator in Cuba! Hey! I said Look at Cuba!


NOTE: Yes, in this post I am making light (somewhat) of serious issues, but that’s a far cry from trying, thankfully in vain so far, to exploit them for political gain.

UPDATE: This tactic is related to, but distinct from, the Chewbacca Defense being applied in the Plame affair (if you haven’t seen this from SadlyNo, be sure to read it).
