    Now I'm wondering if the inebriation isn't just an act.

    I did appreciate "What you call collateral damage I call localized rapture".

  • He doesn't seem unintelligent, but his commentary in this wasn't as clever as it was in the channel four interview or the polish member of the EU parliament.  He gets very wound up in "political correctness" as a euphemism, though it is certainly and historically a pejorative.
