The Prez Does His Britany Impersonation...

well there you go, with that whole "oops, I did it again" moment:
President Bush named Republican fundraiser Sam Fox as U.S. ambassador to Belgium on Wednesday, using a maneuver that allowed him to bypass Congress, where Democrats had derailed Fox's nomination.

The appointment, made while lawmakers were out of town on spring break, prompted angry rebukes from Democrats, who said Bush's action may even be illegal.

Democrats had denounced Fox for his donation to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth during the 2004 presidential campaign. The group's TV ads, which claimed that Sen. John Kerry exaggerated his military record in Vietnam, were viewed as a major factor in the Massachusetts Democrat's election loss.

Recognizing Fox did not have the votes to obtain Senate confirmation in the Foreign Relations Committee, Bush withdrew the nomination last week. On Wednesday, with the Senate on a one-week break, the president used his power to make recess appointments to put Fox in the job without Senate confirmation.

Ok so we just have to say it.

Yes, those evil Gay HomoSeXuals are destroying marriage and traditional family values in america because they just do not understand the importance of being important.

One really has to support the President's Principled Stand here - since, gosh, he really could not appear to be weak before his friends, since they might not think that he was Man Enough... And we know how that Man Thing is so important to so many of those for whom Being Manly Is a Masculine Manliness.

Uh, but if the Prez is doing his Britany, doesn't that make him an even worse drag queen than Hanoi Annie Coulter???
