International Relations

Karen Hughes, friend of Islam

From the Washington Post:

Former White House counselor Karen P. Hughes will take over the Bush administration's troubled public diplomacy effort intended to burnish the U.S. image abroad, particularly in the Muslim world.

Is the thinking that if Hughes can help a multi-millionaire former cokehead act like a "man of the people," she can do anything? I just don't see the Arab street thinking, "Wow, Karen Hughes -- she's connecting with our hearts and minds."

Here's the rest of the farce.
