In the News XXXIV

Death of Benazir Bhutto

I personally had little faith in her as a leader. Her administration was cursed with corruption and she was not very efficient in routing out the menace of Islamofascism. Still in the failed state of Pakistan she was probably the best of a pitiful bunch of leadership candidates.

Imagine a Romney v Edwards election - The Battle of the Scheisters.
