Fat Lady Set to Sing

President Bush has appointed his long-time nanny, Karen Hughs, as the State Department's head p.r. flack.


President Bush will nominate one of his closest longtime advisers to a key State Department post in an effort to help repair the United States' image abroad, especially in the Arab world, a senior administration official said Saturday.


As undersecretary, Hughes' main responsibility will be to repair the image of the United States which was badly tarnished abroad by anger over the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq and overthrow its government.

If everything goes as planned, foreign countries will be persuaded that the United States never abused drugs and alcohol, never failed to perform required military reserve service, and that "compassionate conservative" is a phrase that means something.
