McCain Threatens Mouthy Friend with Post in Minsk

The Today Show reports that after Paul Gramm told the Washington Post that Americans are suffering from a "mental recession" and are just a nation of whiners, US republican presedential candidate John McCain threatened his, one assumes soon to be ex-, economic advisor with an embassy post in Minsk, Belarus. The Today Show goes on to describe Belarus as an "outlaw state [that] is far worse than Siberia in the old days." You gotta respect McCain for diverting attention away from his former top choice for Secretary of Treasury to Belarus. Didn't see that coming.

I think the Ambassador post in Minsk would be rather intersting...The glory of low expectations.
