Free and Fair Elections

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf is all over the map on the timing of elections and silent on re instituting the constitution. But in yesterday's press conference the General, having taken off his uniform, said "We should have elections before the 9th of January." Well, George Bush should be happy as his two demands seem underway. Pervy wore a dark suit instead of his General's uniform and an election is coming. That voting will occur at the end of gun barrel apparently has no bearing. Given the checklist below, someone's looking a bit Hitlerish around the edges:

Independent Judiciary-history
Free Press-cancelled
Political Opposition-suppressed

It's going to be hard to make a little man in a windbreaker look like Adolf while Pervy's working his magic as a strong American ally. But if anyone can pull it off, its Chimpy McHitler (George W. Bush's nickname taught to me by Jay Ambrose).
