Wiki yawn

This whole Wikileaks thing is something I'd normally be really interested in. Government secrets, websites going down, all of that. But for some reason, I just cannot bring myself to care. Mostly because the information released has been so incredibly lame. Hillary Clinton suggesting getting personal info from Ambassadors? I'd be shocked if she wasn't. Some middle eastern countries not supporting Iran? Not a surprise, especially since they've never said "We support Iran". China thinks North Korea is acting like a child? Come on, everyone thinks that. There are a lot of people out there, a lot of young people, who think this is the biggest thing ever. They think Julian Assange will be a hero in future school history books. Are you kidding me? You think this guy is going to make history books? When I was in high school, we only had 2 weeks to cover WW2, I don't think any teacher will have time for this guy. So many people seem shocked that the government hides things, that they don't release everything to the public. I can't for the life of me understand why that's so unbelievable. Were these people born yesterday?

I feel like it's a slow news month. I realize that this story is sort of important, but there has to be something else going on in the world.

Dude I know right? The only thing interesting about it was the SNL skit Wikileaks TMZ - did you catch it? DeNiro and Diddy Dirty Money (wannabe Prince changing his name) were RIDICULOUS in it.

@52faces, YES, I did catch it, it was great! The rest of the episode was a bit of a bust though. Diddy is so desperate for attention lol.
