Incredibly incapable

Mary Robinson, one-time President of the place that likes to refer to itself as the “Emerald Isle”, although everyone else just calls it “that peat bog over there”, has described as “unjust and unwarranted” all criticism from American pro-Israel groups of The Multimillionaire White Mohammedan Nobel Laureate Joker President’s recent award to her of the Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the US. “I was acting purely in a principled, human rights way with no bias, which I am incapable of”, said she. They are so unassuming. So unassuming.

Searching Google images for “Mary Robinson” reveals that she is far from too modest to be photographed though far too unsightly to feature on Frit’s blog. But Frit came across this interesting painting of another Robinson, Robinson Crusoe. The President of the United States, on holiday in the West Indies in his younger days, can be seen mistaking his garb for that of an Arab and fawning at his feet.
