Den konservative blogger David Warren har en post om Benazir Bhutto, som kan tjene som fin antidose til MSMs naive og sentimentale italesættelse af hende som en slags aristokratisk demokrat. (Mønsteret er klart: Smukke (men uduelige) kvindelige ledere får disproportionalt mere snor af MSM — tænk Winnie Mandela (i hendes yngre år), Evita Peron, og nu Bhutto). For dem der kan lide dét er der noget saftigt sladder, men tyngden i posten er den afsluttende analyse:

Faced with the actual problems of Pakistan, she twice made a disastrous prime minister. Her death obviates a third term. But the legacy creates as large a mess. She tutored her supporters to blame President Musharraf for any harm that might come to her, so that when Al Qaeda pulled off the murder, they scored twice. In addition to killing a hated symbol of Westernization, they set the mobs not against themselves, but against Musharraf. As I have argued before in these columns, for all his visible faults, Musharraf has been dealing to the limit of his abilities and opportunities with the actual problems of Pakistan.
