Via Western Rifle Shooters Assn, a link to RedState with what they're terming the money quote of the month. Obama's envoy to the Sudan, Retired Air Force Major Scott Gration, likens countries to small children “Kids, countries, they react to gold stars, smiley faces, handshakes, agreements, talk, engagement.” “We’ve got to think about giving out cookies.”
Okay, never mind about the utter idiocy of trying to 'normalize' relations with a country like Sudan, which is lead by a maniac bent on genocide. Never mind the utter lunacy of putting a Retired Air Force MAJOR on the job (truly, how much diplomacy experience can this guy have??). Never mind the utter stupidity inherent in putting small genocidal countries in the same category as recalcitrant children in need of a time-out. The statements above make the Russian 'Reset' fiasco look like absolute brilliance.
I actually think I need a drink after reading about this one.
