South Korean PM resigns


South Korean Prime Minister Chung Hong-won resigned his post on Sunday due to the ferry disaster that took place recently.

Hunh.

It wasn't his fault, he wasn't driving, right?  He could have totally weaseled out of that one.  But, he didn't, he is a stand up guy and he resigned, taking full responsibility for the disaster that took place on his watch.

I don't think the Obama administration got that memo.

On Friday, John Kerry was speaking to the Trilateral Commission.  In an effort to discuss the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, he said this, 

“A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class citizens — or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state,” Kerry says in the recording.


Wow!  When someone says or does something that is horrible or career-killing, they resign.

See?  That is how it works.
