This one’s interesting. We all know that political favoritism happens, and campaign donors get appointed to positions of power, but this is absolutely ridiculous. The senate approved Colleen Brady Bell as the next ambassador to Hungary, which is on the verge of a government collapse, a neo-facist dictatorial takeover and a partnership with Putin.
Her only qualifications are bundling $800,000 for Obama’s 2012 election campaign, and of course, producing “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
