Basic rules of diplomacy

You don't usually declare that a neighboring president's obesity is affecting his judgment (as Evo Morales said of Alan García).

On the other hand, you also shouldn't necessarily make a crack about how Bolivia had already given up its claim to sea access, given the fact that it is obviously a permanent gaping wound in Bolivia.

What's even more curious is that Greg's righteous indignation about so-called violations of diplomatic protocol is usually selectively reserved for leftist presidents. If a U.S. president --or anyone in the U.S. orbit of influence-- engages in clearly undiplomatic behavior, you probably won't hear about it here.
