Could you go any lower than having Geraldo Rivera call you “a sniveling punk ass traitor“? Surprisingly, yes. You know you have an image problem when even Piers Morgan is comfortable calling you egotistical and accusing you of whining. Edward Snowden’s public statement on his search for political asylum, issued this afternoon via Wikileaks, has proved to be the breaking point for those growing weary of NSA leaker Snowden and his refusal to face the music.
As with Mr Assange, Snowden's ego is now writing checks his body can't cash. (Copyright: Stinger, Top Gun).

Even President Obama publicly wrote off Snowden as nothing more than “a 29-year-old hacker.” And speaking of hacks and their hacking …
@piersmorgan you can maybe get him on your show and discuss phone hacking techniques?

.@piersmorgan You should totally hack his voice mail messages and see if he explains that to anyone.

@piersmorgan Yeah, the guy (you) that was totally cool with hacking other people's phones WOULD be cool with the US spying on him.

So far, the Obama administration’s efforts to have Snowden extradited have been about as successful as America’s effort to deport Morgan. Time for a swap?
@piersmorgan says he's bored of Snowden's "whining." That's the case of the pot and the kettle, mate.
