A Terrorist Organization Grabs the Levers of Power in a Dictatorial Quasi-State: So Hamas is now officially in charge at the Palestinian Authority. This is probably worse than them being unofficially in charge, when Arafat was their hostage. Note the "world reactions" part of the article:
Reactions to the Hamas victory streamed in from around the world. Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, according to news reports, called it a "very, very, very bad result." But Benita Ferrero-Waldner, the European Union's external relations commissioner, said Hamas must be "ready to work for peace" with Israel if it joins the Palestinian government.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan congratulated the Palestinian people on the peaceful elections, which he views as an important step toward a Palestinian state.

President Bush told The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday the United States will not deal with Hamas until it renounces its position calling for the destruction of Israel.

Kind of tells you all you need to know. Bush and Berlusconi disapprove; oh, but they're both part of the Axis of Cowboy, after all. Kofi sends flowers and a mash note.

Dig a six-foot hole in the lawn at the Carter Center and lay a trail of peanuts from the airport to it's edge.

Boot meets ass, shovel meets dirt, Cartner meets destiny. Film at 11.
