With the help of Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters (search), ousted Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide (search) returned to the Caribbean, where he and his wife are staying in a rural guesthouse offered by the Jamaican prime minister.

That woman is SUCH an embarrassment. She is so PAINFUL to watch — and I'm not talking about her looks, or anything other than her ugly, ugly MIND. It is so sad that there are obviously thousands of people who are happy to point at their TVs and say, "Yep, she's ours! She represents us!"

But then again... Barbara Boxer.

Isn't Maxine Waters the same woman who voted against attacking the Taliban? Yeah, I find her credible.

By the way, if the Bush adminstration wants to "kidnap" me and my family and force us to Jamaica I'm ok with that too, but don't send Mad Max Water down to talk to me that would be tourture. Or is is Marxist Waters?

Note to FOX: Please stop with the Maxine face shots. Halloween is still many months away.

How is it that Maxine Waters can reduce nearly every issue to new levels of stupidity. I guess it's just a gift she possesses. What a gal! Tres bien, Maxine! Tres bien!

Any action taken by the United States, while under a GOP president, is evil according to the leftists.
All actions taken by a Dem pres, however, is without question.

I suspect when Aristide went so did a source of funds for the CBC.

"When we came back to him, his bags were already packed. When we asked for his letter of resignation, he said, 'It's in my suitcase, which is already packed,'" said State Department spokesman Adam Ereli.

We saved his life, and others' lives.

Isn't Maxine Waters one of the black caucus members who are registered with the Socialist party? I thought I saw that online once - but can't remember where.

Can they be registered as Socialists and DemocRATS at the same time?

Concur on the headshots. Furthermore, it is said....

"You can lead a Maxine to Waters, but you can't make her think!"

Wonder how much Maxine's mid-winter tour of Africa & the Caribbean is costing American taxpayers?

Frankly, I would have preferred to leave Aristede in place to face his fellow Haitians.

I found a link that has Maxine Waters listed as a Socialist:

Well we learned a valuable lesson, when dealing with corrupt people of Democrat African American Connections, let them stay and get a burning tire around the neck next time.

Good place for this quote:

"Asked by "Fox News Sunday's" Tony Snow why peace protesters like herself didn't object to Clinton's wars, Garofalo explained:

"It wasn't very hip."
