I've griped about this before, but he keeps doing it, so once again - Robert Kagan's column about "the surprising resilience of autocracy in China, Russia, Venezuela and elsewhere" is at least somewhat undercut by the fact that neither Venezuela nor Russia are really autocracies, as the word is actually defined, and China certainly isn't one.

Just saying.
