Where is Karl Rove when you need him?

Paging Karl Rove...
please report to Bush Administration Latin America policy immediately.
So our idea of how to promote democracy in Latin America is, when the Sandinistas re-nominate Daniel Ortega for president, but polling shows he is thoroughly discredited, with even a majority of Sandinistas preferring someone else, we promptly begin denouncing the election, 18 months before the fact?
The only thing I can think of more likely to drive up Ortega's popularity and make this pathetic 80s hangover relevant again is mining Nicaragua's harbors... oops, we tried that one already.
I feel confident Rove could handle this better. Perhaps he should join Karen Hughes at State and be allowed to do so.
