In what has to be one of the year's grandest acts of political irony, BushCo. has appointed Karen Hughes to be in charge of its international image clean-up campaign. Yes, the woman who helped craft the Administration's take-your-country-and-shove-it foreign relations policy is now responsible for turning the tide of virulent anti-American sentiment it has done so much to foster in recent years.
Leave it to BushCo. to dig up their very own version of Lizzie Grubman for this sensitive post. Sometimes you get the PR flack you deserve.
