Dictator du Jour

Hu Jintao, “People’s Republic” of China. Not content with the usual commercial issues of lead paint on toys, , contaminated toothpaste, dog food, etc., etc., the Chinese have moved on to contaminated medicine.

You have to wonder about a regime that is so intent on poisoning it’s major customers.

When things get dull, the Chinese always fall back on that old standby, political repression in Tibet. It’s certainly tried and true.

Certainly seems like holding the Olympics here was a good idea. The only plus is that the Chinese are wasting their money on this folly.
