New Post for W?

The Carpetbagger notes a Ken Baer article in the Prospect and adds a few touches. Send Bush to iraq as our ambassador after the inauguration. Absolutely beautiful. Think we can convince Kerry of this one...even at Oliver Willis' objection?

The future of Iraq is one of the few subject matters about which Bush speaks with real passion. This would be his chance to actually help deliver a democracy to the country he invaded under false pretenses! It would be a way for him to set his own mistake right!

Some of you may be thinking, "But Bush has no idea how to bring stability, better yet democracy, to Iraq." That, of course, is true. But the beauty of this plan is that Bush doesn't need his own ideas -- he'll just help execute Kerry's.


Freedom is "on the march" in Iraq and as ambassador, he can get a first-hand look at what Dick Cheney calls Bush's "remarkable success story."

Best of all, Bush could put to rest most of the criticisms that have dogged him throughout his adult life. People say, for example, that Bush has never held a job that his father didn't help him get. That's true, but this ambassadorship would break the streak -- it'd come from Kerry, not Bush Sr. People say Bush has never shown an ounce of courage. That's true, too, but what could be more courageous than volunteering to work in Iraq right now? People say Bush acts as if he's allergic to hard work. That's obviously true, but this would help prove otherwise.
