The unspeakable in ass-licking pursuit of the unelectable

Of course, if we are remembering the military coup in Chile and its supporters in the United States Government (“I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist because of the irresponsibility of its own people” — Henry Kissinger) it would be remiss of me not to mention three present-day members of the US House of Representatives who made a special trip to Egypt to praise the military dictator there, comparing him to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson (presumably on account of those gentlemen's little-known propensity for massacring unarmed pro-democracy protesters, banning opposition political parties and arresting "leftists") and blaming the September 11th attacks not on al-Qaeda but on the Muslim Brotherhood. Stand up, brave supporters of tyranny and implacable foes of democratic governments around the world, Representatives Michelle Bachmann, Steve King and Louie Gohmert. One has to ask though - will this adoration for General Sisi's jackboots be translated into an overwhelming desire to remain in Egypt rather than returning to the United States they so despise?
