Democracy for Iraq; Tyranny for Togo

Is it just the Crossfader or has the Bush Administration been curiously reticent in the face of the blatant power grab that has been Togo's muted coup. While purple fingers were still visible in the District of Columbia, nary a one has been waved in the direction of Lomé since the news went out that the late Togolese President's son would ascend, Syrian-like, to the throne. Alas, an African-American Secretary of State doesn't really translate into anything for the Africans left in the lurch.
