Crickets and Megaphones

Wow, it sure didn’t take long for Obama’s administration to find their voice of outrage over the constitutional arrest of Honduran President Zelaya!

Read Fausta’s amazing round-up of what happened here. In a nutshell, Zelaya wanted another term as president so he decided to hold a popular referendum on whether he should be eligible. Minor problem: The Honduran constitution can’t be amended by popular referendum so the country’s supreme court ordered the vote canceled. Zelaya tried to go ahead with it anyway. Literally every other arm of the Honduran government — judiciary, legislature, military — was against him, to the point where the troops who arrested him this morning were evidently acting on a court order.

This after such a tepid response to peaceful demonstrators being shot by the Iranian government.
