My kingdom for a good Borat joke!
Tomorrow's front page of the New York Times has a rather nasty 'late January Surprise' for the spouse of one of our Democratic candidates.
I'll give you some hints below the fold.
It involves Uranium.
It involves a mining magnate wining a contract that in the words of the NYT :
The monster deal stunned the mining industry, turning an unknown shell company into one of the world's largest uranium producers in a transaction ultimately worth tens of millions of dollars to Mr. Giustra, analysts said.
It involves Kazakhstan - and the Kazakh President.
It involves a former US President - after he'd been out of office for 6 years - phoning to congratulate that Kazakh President on a "landslide victory" that saw him win 91% of the vote.
It involves $131 million in donations to a certain foundation.
I've give you another hint... the spouse is not Michelle Obama.
If you can't wait for the morning NYT to land on your doorstep -- you can read all about it --> http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/31/us/pol itics/31donor.html?_r=3&hp=&oref =slogin&pagewanted=print&oref=sl ogin&oref=slogin
