Do As I Sssssssay...

Lord save us, AnaCondi's globetrotting again. I know they went and made her Sec of State, but you'd think someone in the White House would have the nous to keep her actual going-to-other-countries-and-talking-to-them activities to a bare minimum. But nay, they've let her out once again upon an unsuspecting world.

This time she's exhorting China to play nicely with Taiwan, in a textbook playground-monitor reinforce-and-modify approach:
Ms Rice praised China's efforts at "cross-straits" contact with Taiwan, but said future contacts should be with the elected government of Chen Shui-Bian, instead of opposition leaders.

Beijing has been accused of trying to isolate Mr Chen by speaking only to his opponents.
All very laudable, I'm sure. After all, it's only polite to deal with the, you know, the elected governments. It's just, I dunno, there was something oddly familiar here...
