Good Morning, Mister President

The laughable wonderful Reader's Digest asked 18 "statesmen" (and women) to give President Obama their best advice on the most pressing issues facing the American people. My favourite by a country mile is French fuckwit philosopher fuckwit Bernard-Henri Lévy's advice, which reveals what I can only assume is a peculiarly Gallic understanding of the term "most pressing," not to mention the magazine's peculiar understanding of the term "statesman":

One of your first acts should be to have erected in the center of Karachi, Pakistan, a monument in memory of Daniel Pearl, the journalist who was kidnapped and killed there.

It would render justice to one of today's great American heroes. And it would test the true reliability of Pakistan as our ally.
