Pakistan

It only took them a little over two months, but Benazir Bhutto's enemies succeeded in assassinating her. While she wasn't totally clean, she was the best hope for democracy and a moderate influence in Pakistan. It's a tragic and potentially explosive development in an already volatile region. The sad truth, I feel, is that western style democracy is an impossibility in a part of the world with so much extremism, today's event being Exhibit A.

It is a very sad day.
And take back what you said about me and the Drudge Report.
Next you will write that I am in league with the K Street thugs.
