Your WTF Moment of the Day: Bob Barr Represents Baby Doc
Today’s jaw-dropping expression of support for a brutal, murderous despot comes from former Republican Congressman Bob Barr, who’s in Haiti sucking up to “Baby Doc” Duvalier.
Barr “will be representing” Duvalier “in bringing his message of hope to the world,” the former Republican congressman’s website says.
“I also am reminded of others who have risen from the ashes,” Barr told reporters Friday. “The city of Atlanta is the Phoenix city. The people of Haiti, likewise, will rise from the problems created by last year’s earthquake and emerge stronger and better than before. That I know is Mr. Duvalier’s deep wish and something that he knows in his heart.”
