OK, now this is starting to become truly ridiculous...

... when the National Security Advisor, the Secretary of State, and the Vice-President formally offer you the job of envoy to Iraq, but--all of a sudden--the President doesn't call, and nominates somebody else.

Of course, the story of General Anthony Zinni was only reported in that radical talking-points rag, WaPo.

I'm not going to excerpt this, except for two lines, because you have to read it yourself to believe it:

The next day, General Zinni said, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. called to thank him for taking the job.


“As a sorry offer to placate me, they offered ambassador to Saudi,” he said in a separate e-mail message, referring to Saudi Arabia. “I told them to stick it where the sun don’t shine.”

And you thought the tax problems were entertaining....
