The News Cycle

As the Keystone Sheiks stumble around the “Rogue Elements” farce, and as donnie stands on the sidelines cheering them on with “and then? and then? and then?” and as the confluence of those twin shams  provides the world with countless hollow and ironic laugh lines, the horror of what the crown prince did – apparently in a childish tantrum – begins to recede into the darkening opacity that always precedes the world moving on to the next big news item.

I say “well done” donnie and the assassins; you have successfully Putinised the world: straight out of Arkady Ostrovsky’s Invention of Russia.
