Post-modern geopolitics

An analysis of President Hu's visit to Washington in the Post today refers to Hu's call for US/Chinese "partnership" on international affairs this way:

A key test of that partnership will be ... whether it can force its patron North Korea to return to six-nation talks on ending its nuclear ambitions.

I guess the North Koreans were right: getting nuclear weapons really did increase their clout in the world....

Three Weird Sisters join the whole nightquill staff in celebrating the departure of that Mayberry Macbeth, Tom DeLay.

By the tingling of my toes,
Something wicked that way goes....

Not all are pure who love to give;
Not all who scam are jailed.
But we are sure that we will live
To see The Hammer nailed.

Now, one more smirk
And back to work.
