Musharraf's former enablers are hustling him to the exits faster than a john throws an old whore out by the scruff of the neck after he's through being serviced. See if you can spot the talking point:
Senator Joe Biden, "election observer": "I firmly believe if they do not focus on old grudges — and there's plenty in Pakistan — and give him a graceful way to move," then it could happen.
Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison: "If there could be a graceful exit or a way that the parliament and the majority could work its will," that would be a proper transition.
Senator Chuck Hagel, "election" observer: The Pakistani president "wants a graceful way out of this. And I think that's what you'll see. Then it will be up to the coalition government to take on some of these tough challenges."
When your sugar daddy decides you're too worn out and used up to sustain his continued bankrolling of your extravagant lifestyle, you don 't argue - you hit the exits.
