The political Olympics

Tom Friedman on the Georgian mess

If the conflict in Georgia were an Olympic event, the gold medal for brutish stupidity would go to the Russian prime minister, Vladimir Putin. The silver medal for bone-headed recklessness would go to Georgia‚Äôs president, Mikheil Saakashvili, and the bronze medal for rank short-sightedness would go to the Clinton and Bush foreign policy teams…

Hmmm… Not quite. The Gold goes to Saakashvili IMHO.
