Got this from one of the Cabinet:
Interesting, if true. However, don’t forget, the late Georgian election didn’t make for a turnaround in Georgian policy towards Russia. Saakashvili had become an embarrassment to Langley, so, they put up an oligarch stooge to oppose him. I looked at the Russian news, and, sure enough, there was an important name missing from Ivanishvili‘s cabinet. Nino Burdzhanadze isn’t in the cabinet… that means that Ivanishvili is nothing but an American lickspittle, worse than Saakashvili was (no lie… the prick has French citizenship, dontcha know).
This means that the Georgian Church is becoming like the Phanar, an obsequious and obedient Stepin Fetchit for Langley. It’d explain how Fathausen got his hands on the money that he spent like a horny sailor in a jeepney on liberty in Po City. It’s a replay of the Cold War years, when Langley backed both Jordanville and SVS at the same bloody time (with Rodzianko and Potapov sticking in their thumbs and pulling out more than one plum, “Oh, what good boys are we!”).
It’s farcical, isn’t it? Yet, look at the GOOD side… it won’t endear Fathausen (who’s called “Johnnie” by a certain well-known son of a certain well-known priest) to Hilarion Kapral, that’s for certain… it’ll also piss off a bishop or two on the OCA Holy Synod. This wasn’t the brightest move in creation, but since when has JP been either prudent or insightful? He’s playing entirely according to character…
Give me the jug… it’s getting loonier by the day…
