Remember how excited everyone was when ol John Kerry finally got his revenge against the Swift Boat guys and verbally beat down Sam Fox, Bush's nominee for ambassador to Belgium and Swift Boat supporter?
Remeber how Kerry killed Fox's nomination and everyone briefly felt pretty good for the old dude?
Well everyone forgot that John Kerry is a born loser.
President Bush named Republican fundraiser Sam Fox as U.S. ambassador to Belgium on Wednesday, using a maneuver that allowed him to bypass Congress where Democrats had derailed Fox's nomination.
Within ten minutes, of course, we got the official release from the Kerry office, one of the 10,000 we get from them daily, on topics ranging from the Iranian hostage crisis to how terrible the new Arcade Fire is. Which shows that, at the very least, they remembered, and were prepared for his inevitable failure. John Kerry is the Ziggy of the United States Senate.
