knitting an afghan out of nothing at all

I think one of the most artful bits of Presidential speech I've heard recently was when Obama found a way to glide over the fact that our man in Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, had obviously stolen his most recent election.

"Though marred by fraud, that election produced a government consistent with Afghanistan's laws and constitution."

Which is basically saying that if it at least has the title of a government, we'll take it.

Gee, if George Bush had said that about Saddam Hussein and his 99.99% election victories it could have saved us a mistake war.
