Dressing down

So David Wilkins took a strip off the Prime Minister for Yank-bashing. It's okay, though - he's already proving himself much more diplomatic than his predecessor:
"It's easy to criticize the United States; we're an easy target at times," Wilkins said. "But the last time I looked, the United States was not on the ballot." (italics mine, seeing as this was a speech and all.)
And with that sentence fragment, the new Ambassador just proved himself more self-aware, and aware of his host country than Paul Celluci did in five years here.

I started to write a reimagining of the speech as Celluci would have delivered it, but couldn't get any farther than "Hey, Dirtbags!"
