Kampala (AFP) - Thousands of Ugandans led by President Yoweri Museveni held a rally Monday celebrating tough new anti-gay laws, praising the bill despite international criticism and donor aid cuts.

Yes, good for Uganda.
They want trade - can we trade them Obama?

Hey Obama, what Uganda do about it?
Kerry plays the nazi card. Smooth.
And he can hold up a picture showing the ‘rally’ (except that it is a picture of a Nuremberg rally from 1936). Would Lurch really be stupid enough to do that? Of course he would.
I wouldn't be surprised if Putin agreed to replace all of the lost aid dollars, if for no other reason than to flip the bird at Obama and the EU again...
