There’s gotta be an expression or euphemism for an ostentatious gift that the recipient really didn’t want, need, or expect (like when Garibaldi presented Apulia to Piedmont and Sardinia). Maybe there is.

Anyhoo, much as Obama doesn’t need foul-mouthed bloggers who say “fuck” a lot cluttering up his New Way Politics, he rrreeeaaalllyyy doesn’t need this, either:

Nicaraguan leader calls Obama’s campaign ‘revolutionary’

MANAGUA, Nicaragua: President Daniel Ortega, who led the 1979 revolution in Nicaragua, says Barack Obama’s presidential bid is a “revolutionary” phenomenon in the United States.

“It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. … but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change,” the Sandinista leader said Wednesday night as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university.

Ortega led a Soviet-backed government that battled U.S.-supported Contra rebels before he lost power in a 1990 election. He returned to office last year via the ballot box.

Actually, I left that last paragraph in there to make older Republicans’ heads asplode.

Damned commie Nicaraguans with their elected dictators.  All that voting and crap.  You think the American people want socialized government?   No sir!
