Resolved: We should send Charles Barkley to Hungary instead

If it's diplomatic niceties we want to avoid;
Hungary's Foreign Ministry summoned the U.S. envoy on Wednesday after U.S. Senator John McCain called Prime Minister Viktor Orban a "neo-fascist dictator".
....McCain, a Republican, told the Senate on Tuesday: "I am not against political appointees... I understand how the game is played, but ... (Hungary) ... is on the verge of ceding its sovereignty to a neo-fascist dictator, getting in bed with Vladimir Putin, and we're going to send the producer of 'The Bold and The Beautiful' as the ambassador."

    The United States, as well as European Union partners, has also criticised Orban for what they see as weakening democratic checks and balances and attacking non-governmental organisations.

    I favor Barkley as Ambassador to the United States. The US has the same problems with our leader.
