USAID has acquired somewhat of a bad name down "South of the Border". Apparently people get all fussy when a few million dollars get, err.. misdirected to fascists and coup plots. But the master of branding, Obama, has got a plan to fix these misunderstandings. Hire political consultant Mark Feierstein, of the acclaimed Greenberg, Quinian, and Rosner firm, to head USAID programs in Latin America! I mean, what could possibly go wrong?!
I am now taking bets on when Morales officially gives USAID the old boot, kick in the ass.
