Well, now that that's settled:
- Democratic presidential candidate Al Sharpton is making plans to meet with both the Haitian president and rebel leaders in an effort to help stem the violent unrest in the country.
Sharpton's diplomatic authority derives from his being able to imagine he might be elected president. And he wants all parties to the conflict to know that he's fully prepared to send in the Federal Reserve.
In related news, Dennis Kucinich has offered to step in to solve the labor dispute raging between Grandfather Twilight and the creatures of the forest.
