Obama's Love Affair with Dictators

How strange that our rather nondescript, sober friends abroad do not garner attention from the current administration, yet overt enemies in Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, Venezuela, and the West Bank most certainly do. Is there some covert code of conduct known to these dictators that allows them to win a pass from supposedly liberal Americans, who profess to value human rights, religious tolerance, and consensual government?...A Thug's Primer, Victor Davis Hanson, National Review Online, July 6, 2007

You might want to read Hanson's darkly funny primer for dictators. Being angry about the White House pampering of tyrants is a good motivation, especially as we get close to the 2010 Congressional elections, but a dose of satirical humor may ease the pain.
