WASHINGTON – We have it on good authority from our embedded White House whistle-blower that the flap over “Chickenshit-gate” currently imperiling Israeli-American relations is simply the consequence of a clumsy attempt at euphemism.
An as-yet-unidentified Administration official had, in fact, meant to call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “pigheaded”, but was reluctant to offend Jewish dietary sensibilities.
Meanwhile, speculation is widespread in the Capital that an “intruder” run to ground today by alert White House guard dogs was not in fact an intruder but an escapee trying to jump the fence. Usually reliable sources believe that she is, in fact, the author of the now infamous slur, and that she has been placed under quarantine at Walter Reed for observation.
More to come.
