And from Taranto’s Best of the Web on Wednesday:

The Enron of Countries

  • “Iceland was 80 percent dependent on imported coal and oil in the 1970s and was among the poorest economies in Europe. Today, Iceland is 100 percent energy independent, and according to the International Monetary Fund is now the fourth most affluent nation on Earth.”–Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in a commentary, Aug. 25
  • “Iceland Teeters on the Brink of Bankruptcy: This volcanic island near the Arctic Circle is on the brink of becoming the first ‘national bankruptcy’ of the global financial meltdown.”–headline and lead paragraph, Associated Press, Oct. 7

Interesting. Looks like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was relying on Laurie David for his insights. Well, Joseph Kennedy relies on Hugo Chavez, so the advantage goes to…well, no one.
