Disingenuous Democracy Promotion

Salon has an excellent piece on the anti-democratic (small "d") efforts a Congressionally established, Republican run group in Haiti.  The International Republican Institute may have been involved in the anti-Aristide coup.  This suggests a fairly provocative line of questioning for reporters around Bush's appearance next week at the National Urban League.
 
Josh Marshall, Kevin Drum, and Matt Yglesias have all recently commented on Bush's weak commitment to international democracy.  Jonathan Chait has recently commented on Bush's weak commitment to domestic democracy.
