A few weeks ago, Jim DeMint journeyed to Honduras to meet with the Honduran government officials who overthrew democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya.

Upon the South Carolina junior senator’s return, he declared that the coup was good — and the people rejoiced because they knew that it was good, despite the current state of marshal law in which they lived and the daily curfews that restricted their activities.

Now, Reuters, AP, et al, are reporting that Honduran officials are in the middle of negotiations to return Zelaya to power.

Hmm. Maybe things weren’t as hunky-dory as DeMint claimed.
