Fame without Shame

I have been reading an article in Le Monde Diplomatique where journalist Ramírez Orozco castigates  Columbia’s President,Uribe, for his role in the parmilitary’s role in its war against the Columbian people. Uribe,ironically ,received the presidential medal of Liberty from George Bush. 

    And who should be standing in line to receive his medal of Liberty? Non other that George Bush’s Derputy Sherrif, the littleOzzie battler, the Ex- Prime Minister of Australia,John Howard.

Many people would disassociate themselves from such a ceromony of they knew Uribe was going to be a recipient of the medal but not our ex Prime Ministert who received his medal from the Sherrif with  pride and with a grin  wide enough to split his face.
