The Clown Show, Episode 4687

Feckless Leader:
"It's now time for the newly elected folks to show up and form their government, and the question then is, will they be friends of the United States, and I certainly hope so," he said at a news conference in Ghana.
He's talking about Pakistan in his own inimitable way, and is quoted by this McClatchy article: "U.S. urges Pakistanis to keep Musharraf, despite election defeat"

Yes, keeping a soundly defeated ruler in power at the bidding of the US is how the victorious Pakistanis will prove themselves to be friends of the US. Perhaps the administration has confused the Pakistanis with the Democrats. Less enlightened peoples might think that elections determine who has power, we now know that elections are kind of like advice, to be ignored when inconvenient.

They also don't want the justices that Musharraf canned reinstated, that might mean the return of the rule of law to Pakistan. It sets a bad example here in the States where we now know that the ruler is above the law. Maybe we could send over Scalia or Alito to sit on the court.
