Where is Karl Rove when you need him?
Posted by Heather Hurlburt

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.

"promptly begin denouncing the election"

Huh?

Where in the article are we denouncing "the election"? Denouncing Ortega, sure (and with good reason). But "the election"? Not.

Sheesh. This blog was advertised as something more than typical non-factual Bush-hatred. False advertising?

I like to earn the World of Warcraft Gold very much, I want to have a lot of warcraft gold in the game, i do not satisfy the old equipment and so i have to buy wow gold to buy the new equipment to make me strong. If i am very strong in the game i can get some cheap wow gold as the rewards in the game. So i like the game very much.

I hope i can get mabinogi online gold in low price.
