More Republican Outright Silliness: The Continuing Saga

Doug Goodyear campaign manager for the John McCain 2008 Republican National Convention and chief executive of lobbying firm DCI Group, had to resign Saturday after a report that his lobbying firm used to represent the military regime in Myanmar. Apparently he was engaged as a lobbyist working to "improve relations between the United States and Myanmar" and to act as the military regime's public relations agent in Washington.

As we speak this wonderful government of Myanmar is more concerned about its self preservation than helping its people recover from Tropical Cyclone Nargis, which has killed tens of thousands of people and affected millions more.

Sounds like they learned a lot from the Republicans; how to put your interests before the people and how to handle a tropical storm effectively.
