Hard to take Ed “These Strikes Are Wrong” Miliband seriously after his broken record soundbite interview. One must seriously consider whether he has been kidnapped and replaced with a malfunctioning cyborg a la Stepford Wives. I’m not sure a human could have been capable of replicating the exact same statement so many times no matter how much effort they put into memorization. I have to say, the evidence points toward cyborg. Which may not be such a bad thing, given the character of his political opponents.
