Jean in Turkmenistan


The Argus reports this revolting little tidbit of retirement fun:

Former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien paid a visit to Turkmenistan on behalf of CalgaryÂ’s Buried Hill Energy as part of his new role as an attorney with the Calgary firm of Bennett Jones. While there, he spent an hour lobbying Turkmenbashi the Great for oil concessions, which he received.

Ugh.

Mad as a hatter, no?

More here and here, where he is made an (always appropriate) object of ridicule.
