The President of Pakistan is A Horndog
Posted by Michael Cohen

This is the kind of behavior I would really have expected from Henry Kissinger but the new  President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari seems to be engaging in some serious ... ahem ... "shuttle diplomacy." Check out this exchange between Zardari and Sarah Palin.

“I am honored to meet you,” Ms. Palin said.

“You are even more gorgeous than you are on the (inaudible),” Mr. Zardari said.

“You are so nice,” Ms. Palin replied. “Thank you.”

“Now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you,” Mr. Zardari continued. At which point an aide told the two to shake hands.

“I’m supposed to pose again,” Ms. Palin said.

“If he’s insisting,” Mr. Zardari said, “I might hug.”

This is pretty gross. You have the leader of a nuclear power basically trying to cop a feel in front of the international media. I'm no fan of Ms. Palin but she doesn't deserve this.

Then again, if ever there was a moment to push Mr. Zardari to crack down on those Al Qaeda training camps in Waziristan this might have been it . . .
