As tragic as Benazir Bhutto’s death is, it is hard to really look at her as the savior of democracy. After all, now we know her 19-year old son will be her successor, under the guidance of his father, Bhutto’s husband. It is hardly democratic for a political party to be dominated as the province of one family.

Thank goodness in the "greatest democracy on earth" we could never do things like that. At least that’s what Irving Kristol’s son told me.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
