Narjan had looked into the incredible “irrationality” of the Armenian Diaspora in US, in his discussion of the situation with the US Ambassodor in Armenia, or the lack of one for that matter.

Passing on to the paradox created by diaspora, the blogger says it is outrageous for the Armenians in US to demand, that any ambassador to Armenia should openly accept the fact of Genocide, while the official position of Washington contradicts with it.
Still, the Armenian lobby couldn’t find anything more productive to do, then get dragged into this absolutely lose-lose game.

To be more exact, they are trying to make sure, that there is no [US] Ambassador during the elections – no ambassador means less noise, and more 120 year old grandmas and grandpas walking cheerfully to their polling stations and voting for the correct party
