WTF Friday, 6/8/2012

Apparently operating on the theory that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, the spokesman of Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, Ilias Kasidiaris, assaulted two female politicians on live television yesterday.

Kasidiaris then broke out of a locked room in the television studio and is currently on the run from the police. His party, whose 7% vote share in last month’s elections brought it to Parliament for the first time ever, has declared an embargo on all media contact.

Meanwhile, the most exciting news U.S. politics could manage this week was Bill Clinton wandering off-message on tax policy. Do better, America.
