I do not much care for this Julian Assange character

He weirds me out, to be blunt.

Perhaps it is because he (from certain angles) looks like an albino version of an ex-boyfriend.

Perhaps it is because he's obviously an ass.

Perhaps it is because he is an Australian with a French-sounding last name that finally gives us a rhyming word for "orange".

Perhaps it is because he considers himself some sort of Robin Hood for information when, in fact, he's just a digital paparazzo with a super-duper telephoto lens.

Perhaps it is because he runs around "in hiding", with no permanent address.

Perhaps it is because he looks like a James Bond nemesis.

Perhaps it is because Michael Moore likes him.

Perhaps it is because his recent leaks focus on water-cooler gossip around Foggy Bottom rather than the real evil doers on Wall Street.

Or lastly, perhaps it is because he so blatantly ripped off the "Wiki" brand.

Any way you slice it, I'll be glad when his 15 minutes are up.  Surely, we're getting close, yes...?
