From the Michael Hastings' article that led to General McChrystal being axed:
"In February, the day before the doomed offensive in Marja, McChrystal even drove over to the president's palace to get him to sign off on what would be the largest military operation of the year. Karzai's staff, however, insisted that the president was sleeping off a cold and could not be disturbed. After several hours of haggling, McChrystal finally enlisted the aid of Afghanistan's defense minister, who persuaded Karzai's people to wake the president from his nap."
The leader of this broken-down state cannot be bothered to talk to the commanding general of his greatest ally. What a joke....

Rightfully so, Neyer and Law are admitted to the BBWAA. They both deserve it very much, and probably raises the collective intelligence of the BBWAA at least a little bit. Will Carroll's in too, so that's another good thing.
Unfortunately, like KLaw said, it will still be a long time before Tim Raines gets into the HoF.
