Meanwhile in Foggy Bottom

Smitty, noting that he himself is not a presidential candidate, suggests a paragraph for Mitt Romney’s future use:

I’d like to congratulate the President on his choice of Secretary of State. After the better part of four years, somebody in the Administration finally took responsibility the way leaders do, on one of those hopefully rare occasions when it involves confessing a shortcoming. In this case, one that involved the butchery of four Americans. Hopefully this President isn’t too old to learn something from all this. Better leaders plan so as to minimize these sorts of tragedies. Lesser men play the Casablanca card and locate the usual suspects for a round-up. How is Nakoula doing these days, Mr. President?

Nakoula, since you asked, is awaiting an evidentiary hearing.

    If Nakoula’s situation were less funny, I am confident that SNL would turn it into a sketch.

    Which, in turn, would likely be less funny.

    GWB, by his own telling, never made a mistake in 8 years, except maybe the Katrina flyover. Guys don’t apologize.
