Maybe Kristof Is On To Something

I just finished reading Nicholas Kristof's column in the New York Times, and I think that he correctly describes the GOP's dream country, though there might be some squabbling over some of the Christianists ideas.  Naturally, many in the GOP would disagree, but Kristof's breakdown of how Pakistan is run does seem to align nicely with the policy rhetoric the GOP uses.  And I doubt comparing Pakistani systems with GOP dreams will sit well with that lot, so I was glad to see Kristoff include that there are other Asian, Latin American and African models to strive for.  Obviously anything is better than looking to Europe for any policy ideas; they're usually just too European, and for the GOP that usually means bad for people, and most importantly bad for business.
