Saudi does what it should, Shrub applauds

Well, what does one expect? Of course Shrub will kiss their feet, he's terrified at the thought of the House of Saud turning off US oil. I think he'd probably parade naked down Pennsylvania Avenue if he thought it would win him brownie points.

The US should be roundly, and loudly, condemning the human rights record of Saudi Arabia. Fine, it would be a hollow condemnation from a country that cannot even follow its own Constitutional rules on treatment of prisoners, but it would be a condemnation to which the Saudi monarchy would take heed. The UN is a toothless monster, but the US is an entity to which far, far too many people listen - sometimes that listening can be used for something good.

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos.
