President Obama's determined effort to find the most unqualified campaign donors he can possibly reward with important ambassadorial positions continues to bring comical, and disturbing, results.  First there was the hapless boob he tapped for ambassador to Norway, top Obama bundler Geroge Tsunis, who might be able to find Norway on a map, but otherwise knows absolutely nothing about it whatsoever.  The unamused Norwegians retaliated for the insult from Obama by nominating Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize.

ObamaCare perpetrator Max Baucus, a Democrat who fled the Senate after describing the crowning legislative "achievement" of his life as a "train wreck," declared he was "no real expert on China" when chosen to serve as ambassador to China.  Naturally, his old chums in the Senate waved him right on through the confirmation hearings without a single dissenting vote, 96-0.
