Lookin' for Love

The Wall Street Journal published an excellent account of the clusterfuck that has been the "rescue" and handback of Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng, including Chen's declaration to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton via telephone that he wanted to kiss her, his reported declaration to U.S. officials that he wanted to leave the embassy, and his subsequent very public about-face.

Not to mention that U.S. officials were somehow persuaded to smuggle Chen into the embassy past Chinese security forces (a bit of a diplomatic 'no-no') and that Chen's "defection" forced Ambassador Gary Locke to cut short his family holiday in Bali.

Don't look for Ben and Jerry to be creating 'Chocolate Chip Chen' or 'Blind Man's Brownie Nut' flavors any time soon.
