Eject! Eject! Eject!

Karen Hughes is quitting her job as Undersecretary of State for improving America's image abroad.

She didn't make any progress, but to be fair to her, it's kind of hard to polish America's image abroad while Bush and Cheney and Blackwater keep applying layers and layers of more shit. Even Ron Popeil would have a hard time selling the idea of "we are really the good guys, honest", when you have things such as Bush's nominee to be the Torturer Attorney General is unable to say that waterboarding is torture and Eric Prince's goons from Blackwater shooting people in Baghdad just for the hell of it.

Don't let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.
You are right though, it was an impossible job to do, what with secret renditions, Guantanamo, illegal wiretaps,indiscriminately throwing ordinance around the world, etc, etc.

Yeah, pretty damned hard to polish a turd. She tried, Lord knows, she tried, but she is, after all, only human, and a turd is, well, a turd, no matter how hard you try to polish it.
