San Diego?
I'm ever so pleased that former futbol star Diego Maradona has scored on the President:
The keynote was struck by football star Diego Maradona, who wore a "Stop Bush" T-shirt to attend an anti-Bush "counter-summit" that drew some 4,000 protesters from around the world and easily eclipsed the official summit in the public's attention. "I'm proud as an Argentine to repudiate the presence of this human trash, George Bush," said Maradona.

Maradona's anti-Bush sentiment was replicated across a nation driven to a near standstill by tens of thousands of protesters chanting "terrorist Bush", while hospital and subway workers went on strike in Buenos Aires.
The world needs more progressive celebrities who aren't afraid to point fingers (and perhaps crush sleeping pills and slip them into the ruling order's beverages).

Maradona... um. He does live in Cuba, right?

Yup. He went there for treatment for his cocaine addiction and lost weight to boot. I have mixed feelings about Cuba. I like the fact that the government actually delivered on some of its revolutionary promises, particularly where heathcare is concerned. But the absence of democracy is still the absence of democracy. Nevertheless, it tickles me when Castro harshes on our leaders. They have it coming.

When I see Democracy in action in places like Argentina, it fills me with hope for humanity.

Me too, though I suppose there's a dark lining somewhere. Still, I'm just delighted to see Bush greeted with the reception he so richly deserves.
