For eight long years, while George W. Bush undermined and ignored the US Constitution, the American Left rent its garments and bewailed every insult to that sacred document, but not all constitutions are created equal, and when Manuel Zelaya effectively abrogated the Constitution of Honduras by leading a mob to seize a pile of ballots for his quasi-referendum which the Supreme Court, Congress, Attorney General, and Federal Election Commission of Honduras had declared illegal, then the acting government of Honduras became whatever mob Zelaya could whistle up, and since he controlled the National Police and ignored court orders and legislation at his pleasure, it’s hard to see how any Honduran institution except the army could have removed him from the Presidential Palace in Tegucigalpa, but…

For the American Left, he was still the "democratically elected President of Honduras," even when Honduras had ceased to be a democracy where anything as refined as an election actually mattered, and now it was nothing but a mob and an army.

I'm a painter and photographer who supplements his meager income by hurling rotten fruit and screaming "Welcome to the Bu!" at the Humvees of hedge-fund managers and their nightmare spawn who get stuck in the ridiculously narrow drive-through at McDonald's in Malibu. They inevitably poop their pants and abandon the vehicle, which I subsequently strip and sell for parts, and that is how I can afford to live in Malibu.
