Good Example

President Bush might be thinking that a trip to Mongolia is just the ticket now that all sorts of shit is hitting the fan here at home. But he still hasn’t lost his magic touch. He’s telling the Chinese to look to Taiwan as a role model of democracy. Seeing as how the mainland Chinese government sees Taiwan as a rogue province and has repeatedly threatened to invade the island, using them as an example is a little like going into Little Havana here in Miami and suggesting out loud that Fidel Castro did a bang-up job of cleaning up the mob corruption in Cuba in 1959 and we should emulate his tactics here.
