    It’s amazing that Tsunis thought there might still be hope…

    …for his doomed nomination, and for that matter, it’s amazing also that the Obama administration would not withdraw it.

    But since we virtually sell ambassadorships & Tsunis paid for his (indirectly I admit), I guess for Obama to renege on the deal would be rather like false advertising.

    UFF DA !!

    So our Senators voted for a government shutdown?

    And yet, no outrage.

      If it was GOP legislators trying to stop a spending bill this comment string would be full…

    our elected officials have anything better to do than quabble over a position so insignificant as ambassador to Norway?

    On the other hand, while they are doing that they are not dreaming up other evil doings.
