The White House had trouble today explaining why the former producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Colleen Bell, is our new ambassador to Hungary. ABC’s John Karl, asking questions of Josh Earnest wonders does she have any qualifications to be named ambassador to a major European nation, apparently missing the memo that the only major qualification you need in this or any administration to named as ambassador to a major European nation is a fairly fat pocketbook (or, in this case, the ability to get others to open their fairly fat pocketbooks).
So there you have it. She may not have knowledge of a single strategic interest the United States shares with Hungary, and probably has only a small inkling of where Hungary falls on a map, but she likes to eat things with paprika and she’s been successful in business. And if there’s a crisis of Hungarian governance involving an evil twin separated from the sitting Prime Minister at birth, who reappears suddenly after the Prime Minister’s parents die mysteriously in a car crash on a stormy night, she’ll know exactly how to handle it.
