Condi Pot calls Vladimir Kettle black

You just can’t make this stuff up. From The Associated Press, under the headline, “Rice worried by Putin’s broad powers,” we learn the following:

MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian government under Vladimir Putin has amassed so much central authority that the power-grab may undermine Moscow’s commitment to democracy, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Saturday.

“In any country, if you don’t have countervailing institutions, the power of any one president is problematic for democratic development,” Rice told reporters after meeting with human-rights activists.

“I think there is too much concentration of power in the Kremlin. I have told the Russians that. Everybody has doubts about the full independence of the judiciary. There are clearly questions about the independence of the electronic media and there are, I think, questions about the strength of the Duma,” said Rice, referring to the Russian parliament.

Now substitute “White House” for “Russian government” and “Kremlin,” “George W. Bush” for “Vladimir Putin,” “Washington” for “Moscow,” “presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton” for “Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice,” “Americans” for “Russians” and “Congress” for “Duma.” Then shoot yourself in the head in order to save precious bullets for our valiant comrades in the KGB … pardon me, the Department of Homeland Security. And to think they once said irony was dead.
