Man, Lee Smith was really on to something with that whole “many Arabs like Bush” thing. Newsweek reports that “Randa Fahmy Hudome, who just this month signed a $1.4 million contract to represent the Libyan government, served as a behind-the-scenes ‘media consultant’ helping to prepare this week’s press release praising Bush’s record in promoting ‘human rights, democracy and self-determination’ in the Middle East.”
