This blog is usually just a conglomeration of stuff that amuses me for one reason or another. (Some would point out that I'm easily amused. I can't deny it.) I try to avoid politics, but now and then something political amuses me through its sheer outrageousness, like this new proof of the flowering of democracy in the Middle East, and I just can't resist.
Let me see if I have it straight about Pervez Musharraf:
1. Military dictator? Check. (Passes the duck test.)
2. Has weapons of mass destruction? Check. (Ask India if you don't believe me.)
3. Violates Human rights? Check. (Protesters and journalists beaten.)
4. Harbors terrorists? Check. (Osama's found safe harbor in Pakistan for ever so long.)
But not to worry: the State Department has sent a sternly worded letter saying that they'll be reviewing the millions of dollars in aid we're sending to Pakistan every single week.
I love the smell of democracy in the morning!
