Who is Julian Assange?
I’ve just realized who Julian Assange, the professional leaker of U.S. government documents and wreaker of diplomatic havoc, really is. He is the spiritual twin of Angelina Jolie. It’s not just that both Assange and Jolie have French names with a soft “g” sound in the first name and a voiced “zh” sound in the last name. It’s that they look alike—they could be brother and sister—and project the same highly unpleasant vibe:

John Hawkins, another Townhall columnist, says, in so many words, that the Wikileaks guy should be offed by the CIA. In general, I’m in favor of having the U.S. do things that make us feared, rather than liked.Paul K. writes:
When I look at the photos of Julian Assange, particularly the one at Wikipedia, he strikes me as decadent, devious, and weak. He is wanted on rape charges, and that sounds like the sort of activity that would appeal to him.LA replies:
I see them both differently from the way you do. To me, Assange doesn’t look weak, but extremely arrogant and determined. He looks like a man who is set on doing something bad and nothing is going to stop him.
