Bush to Appoint Jimmy Carter Ambassador to Hell
As former President Jimmy Carter meets this week with Hamas leaders in the West Bank and Syria, sources at the State Department say President George Bush will soon honor Mr. Carterâ€™s decades of freelance diplomacy by appointing him as the first U.S. Ambassador to Hell.
â€œBush just wants Carter to go there,â€ said an unnamed State Department source, â€œand to set up an embassy, and try to be a good listener, open a communication channel, find common ground.â€
What an excellent idea! The sooner it is implemented the better.
