Jimmie and the flip sides of the POTUS coin

by Smitty

Jimmie Bise has two great posts in a row in the old Google Reader.

Ted Kennedy, it seems, was unaware that Ronald Reagan (probably) read Ted like a Danielle Steele novel, and treated Kennedy appropriately.

The American people, also having been read like a Danielle Steele novel, have a President treating the Honduran people inappropriately.
  • Is the "Honduran treatment" a coded message the US lumpen proletariat about the dangers of getting uppity?
  • Does Manuel Zelaya have some incredibly damaging information, and this absurd support is helping that stay obscure?
  • Is this all just what the Obama administration considers a "cost of doing business" to make friends in the region?
None of those possibilities seems remotely satisfying. The same could be said of the administration as a whole, so perhaps it's all in character.
