Just what is chutzpah?
Let me tell you, it's a term used to describe shameless and brazen attempts to manipulate a situation to your own ends, especially when it involves exploiting the tragedy of others. The classic example was a criminal who murdered his parents and then begged for mercy from the court because he was an orphan.
The spirit of brass-balled chutzpah lives on in Turtle Bay where underground State Department Republicans/Bloggers The Diplomad report that Kofi Annan is taking credit for work and relief of tsunami victims that's really being done by the USA and Australia. Read all about it here.
What a way to start the New Year, by repeating old crimes of exploiting the suffering of others.
Some things never change.
