On their way to Easter vacation, George Bush and Karl Rove are doing a little evading of the law just to keep their hands in. Unable to get Senate approval, the White House has used a recess appointment to make Sam Fox the U.S. Ambassador to Belgium.
Mr. Fox’s qualification as a diplomat is based on his $50,000 contribution to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, which produced ads smearing John Kerry’s war record in 2004.
Meanwhile, a new poll shows that the Anxiety Indicator of Americans is moving closer to a level signalling “a full-blown crisis of public confidence.”
What could possibly be causing so much worry?
