Banana Republic?

A quote from Karl Rove in a speech to Republican lawyers:

"'We're, in some parts of the country, I'm afraid to say, beginning to look like we have elections like those run in countries where the guys in charge are colonels in mirrored sunglasses,' Mr. Rove said. 'I mean, it's a real problem.'"
He's talking about himself, surely, and his own party's policies - electronic voting machines with no paper trail and poor security, voter suppression tactics, partisan prosecutions of opposition politicians, swift-boating campaigns - the list goes on. He obviously has no faith in or respect for the will of the people and is intent on rigging the next election to get the right result.
