No Progress? No Nookie!

Now there's a slogan!

The women of Kenya have gone Lysistrata on their do-nothing political husbands. Spurred on by Kenya's Federation of Women Lawyers, the Kenyan leaders' wives are being encouraged to cut their husbands off until a weeks-long political stalemate gets resolved:  "The boycott has been sparked by a feud between Mwai Kibaki, the president, and Raila Odinga, the prime minister, over who runs the government agenda in parliament."

So far, the Prime Minister's wife has joined the boycott. No word yet on whether Mrs. Kibaki will develop a blinding headache, but here's hoping.

Whatever works, right?

Bad as all the talk is of Michelle Obama's clothes, hair and arms, at least we don't have to deal with this.
