said that U.S.-Japanese economic ties are so intertwined, they are “almost pornographic.”

Not in trouble? I've read elsewhere that they are, over numerous issues.

U.S.-Japanese economic ties are so intertwined, they are “almost pornographic.”

Interesting statement. Almost sounds sarcastic. I'd be wary of people spouting hyperboles and metaphors on-the-record to describe foreign relations.

...and in a follow-up statement, Campbell said that he hopes, "to become one of those blue guys in that awesome documentary called 'Avatar'". When it was pointed out that they weren't real people and that wasn't a documentary, he replied, "Really? It sure looked real to me!"

Campbell reminds me of that Iraqi spokesman who's standing before the cameras denying that the Americans are in Baghdad as fighting is going on in the city behind him. Campbell is in serious need of a reality check.
