Old Political Hacks Don't Die

I'm stealing the title for this post from the blog Somewhere in Africa. The hack in question--Dick Morris, who is causing controversy for his recent work in the Kenyan presidential race of all things.

Kenya? I don't really have that much to say about this except to wonder how greedy Morris must be. Supposedly this work is pro bono. Why do I not believe this to be true? Is it because Dick Morris is incapable of telling the truth? It is because of the deep corruption in African politics? Is it because it is blindingly obvious? Or all of the above?

Global Voices Online has a more comprehensive discussion of Morris' African turn.
