Yr. Wonkette was anxious – like, forgot the Zoloft at home before a family reunion anxious – over the prospect of a neutered Daily Caller without the hateful sage musings of wunderkind reporter Matthew Boyle. Would anyone bother reading the Daily Caller anymore, without tiny bio pics of an extremely seductive adult baby to the left of some of the articles? Without Boyle’s insight, could Tucker Carlson’s venerable media empire lose the edge in exposing Barack Obama’s blackness, and the fact that some other people are black too? Would The Daily Caller continue cutting deep to the secretive, putrid heart of the current White House?

We should not have feared! Now comes “news” that President Obama may give a cushy, status-wielding government job to someone who gave him a bunch of money. GASP! Ok, ok, so that’s not particularly shocking, but would you believe the recipient of Obama’s wonderful campaign spoils might be the Devil Wears Prada lady? According to Bloomberg News, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s name is one of a few floating around as Ambassador appointments to the UK or France. Wintour will obviously be appointed to either (or both!) posts, since Obama represents a totally New World Order where politicians look out for those who support them financially. Perhaps the most disheartening aspect of this potential appointment is Wintour’s obvious intentions to accept the position, helping to prolong the unbearable feedback loop of money in politics.

Though the opportunity may present itself, Wintour, the inspiration for the antagonist in “The Devil Wears Prada,” is said not to be interested in the position.

It’s unclear when money will lose its newly awarded, staggering influence over politics; certainly not anytime soon, with the President’s biggest campaign donors lining up greedily for post-election rewards. Notice, too, that this is a completely new phenomena unique to the unscrupulous Obama cartel.

The financial news service notes that presidents tapping donors for these diplomatic roles is nothing new. In Obama’s first term he nominated 59 ambassadors, 40 of whom were fundraising bundlers.

If you quickly scan your glazed eyes over that bit about tapping donors for diplomatic roles being nothing new, you’ll notice that President Obama and no one else ever sure appointed a lot of his fundraisers to these mostly ceremonial positions. As the plot continues to thicken, Yr. Wonkette is grateful for the Daily Caller’s persistence in peeling away the edges of deception, revealing an unraveling narrative wherein time-travelling Kenyans with a penchant for document forgery fight tirelessly to make us learn about blacks, old uncles write thank you notes to perverts and antagonists from Anne Hathaway movies pay big bucks for the chance to belittle some foreign interns for a change.

    OK, I went to the Daily Holler because I was genuinely curious why this particular story made them so butt hurt:

    Ironically, though Wintour was one of the top money drivers during the 2012 election cycle, she claimed after the election that she was very pleased money was not what won the presidency.
    “It’s no secret that I worked very hard for the president this campaign,” she said of Obama’s 2012 victory, according to the Post.
    “And it’s very rewarding to see that money can’t buy the White House, which is what the Republicans were trying to do with all those hundreds of millions of dollars that the super PACs were raising,” she added. “I’m so grateful that the president will have a second term.”

    Ah, so that's why they are so apoplectic. Got it.

  • sullivanst

    Wow, it's almost as if Obama's rate of 30.2% political appointments wasn't nearly identical to W's 30.0% or less than Daddy Bush's 31.3% and Gerald Ford's 38.2% (analysis of St. Ronnie's appointments "coming soon" apparently, but let's not forget he ran the most corrupt administration in history, so it wouldn't be a shock if his number was pretty high, too).

    It's also almost as if the Daily Callgirl's criteria ignoring non-Ambassador-level chiefs of mission was carefully selected so as to distort the figures.

    In addition, and this is a total guess, but I'd imagine that most times Presidents appoint donors to the diplomatic corps less often in their second term than their first, what with no longer having to worry about financing a reelection campaign.

    • Veritas78

      Well over half of Obama's political appointees were to the Caribbean and Western Europe, which is entirely understandable and even appropriate. They get a little plum & sun and they can't do any real damage. Plus, they get to be called Ambassador for life. He's actually been far more supportive of career diplomats than any of his republican predecessors, which is why the Benghazi accusations make no sense at all.

  • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

  • I just want to make sure I understand Tucker's latest news coup de grâce:

    1) People are speculating that Wintour may be appointed ambassador to England or France.
    2) Wintour gave money to Obama.
    3) Presidents have never appointed donors to ambassadorships.
    4) Wintour has said she wouldn't take the job anyway.
    5) ? ? ?
    6) Profit!

    Well, it does make as much sense as a news story as anything on Benghazi.

    • Hey, they're experts at creating their own reality, remember? Consider such examples as Chris Christie running for president; Chris Christie getting the VP nomination; Mitt Romney in a landslide; Fast & Furious blowing the lid off the administration; the New Black Panthers scandal blowing the lid off the administration; Benghazi blowing the lid off the administration; Solyndra blowing the lid off the administration; the birth certificate; the other birth certificate; Benghazi. It's just proof that where you say there's smoke, there's fire.

Sure, they have almost no sandy beaches; it has the most obese population on the planet (so no hot tropical babes and/or dudes to gawk at, most likely); a large piece of the island has been rendered virtually uninhabitable by decades of reckless phosphorous mining; and you can walk around the whole country in a matter of hours, but they're up-and-coming because I hear they got two hotels now!
