Or, maybe she should be Ambassador to PlasticSurgeryistan. Really, women need to stop doing this to themselves.

But wait, don’t we still need one for Libya?

President Barack Obama is considering nominating Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, to be either his next ambassador to the U.K. or France, as he looks to reward his biggest fundraisers with embassies that never seem out of fashion, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Wintour, 63, may have some competition for the London posting, with Matthew Barzun, the finance chairman of Obama’s presidential campaign, also interested in the job, officially known as ambassador to the Court of St. James’s, said the people, who requested anonymity.

Both Wintour and Barzun were among Obama’s biggest bundlers in the campaign, with each raising more than $500,000 to help re-elect the president. Marc Lasry, the managing partner and founder of Avenue Capital Management, covets the Paris embassy, said the people.

    The ambassador knows nada; just the way the DB likes them.

    And can you imagine the spending she’ll do and claim as Ambassador. There are limits to what Ambassadors can spend, but what’s the chance that a Friend of TOTUS will be told, ummm you have to pay for that personally.

    And the press confs. will be FABULOUS DARLING. How many pairs of shoes do you own? Can women have too much black in their wardrobe? Isn’t ELLE magazine the worst?

    She looks like a camel. Have her fill the spot in Benghazi instead.

    More suggestions:

    Sarah Jessica Parker – Ambassador to France
    Beyonce – Ambassador to Italy
    Jamie Foxx – Ambassador to Germany
    Tina Brown – Ambassador to Libya
    Harvey Weinstein – Ambassaor to Egypt
    Joy Behar – Ambassador to Saudi Arabia

    Hey, what a great way to get rid of all these people. I say, “BroncoBama – go for it ! “

    What about Yoko Ono?

    Can we conservatives just declare our independence from the Messiah and go live on Mars? We can once again show the universe why freedom works.

    And while I’m fantasizing, I’d like a Twinkie.

  7. tamcat says:

    Another ugly political move, with yet another woman to carry the torch for Barrack Obama. Doesn’t this deal reek of crony capitalism? They’ll all be rich.

  8. Timbo says:

    What could possibly qualify this woman for an Ambassador post? The Editor of Vogue…Really? The DB is turning out to be more brazen, incompetent and malevolent than I had previously thought possible. How do we survive four more years of this childish stupidity? I suspect Mooch is behind this play. This is even crazier than Bush floating Harriet Myers for the Supreme Court. Sheer narcissistic insanity.

    Another “Let Them Eat Cake” I see.

    Well, she needs to Eat a whole lot of freaken Cake for she is just a human tooth pick with a head on top, kind of like a Pencil.

    Just goes to show how serious the dumb, jackass, moronic bastard is about America. Don’t forget to give Barbie & Ken a spot somewhere !

    Obama could send the Detroit Councilwoman to be the U.K Ambassador and send Anna Wintour to Detroit

    Mark Steyn has a good column (disturbing) on the BBC pedophile, Jimmy Savile (savage cretin). UK definitely doesn’t need a celebrity ambassador. http://www.steynonline.com/5298/the-court-predator

    “…In the Sixties, Savile became a star disc jockey in Britain’s nascent pop biz because that’s where the 14-year-old nymphettes are. In the Seventies, he became a kiddie-TV host because that’s where the nine-year-old moppets are. He became a celebrity volunteer with his own living quarters at children’s hospitals and homes because that’s where the nine-year-olds too infirm to wiggle free or too mentally ill to protest are. He persuaded various institutions to give him keys to the mortuary because that’s where the nine-year-olds unable even to cry out are. (Stoke Mandeville Hospital is now investigating whether he “interacted inappropriately” with corpses.) … And he more or less hid in plain sight. When Fleet Street reporters seeking a quote on something or other called him up and said “Is that Jimmy Savile?” he’d shoot back: “I never touched her!” On the one occasion we met, I remember being struck by the physical strength he projected, even at his then-advanced age. A few years ago, an interviewer asked, “You used to be a wrestler, didn’t you?”

    “I still am.”
    “Are you?”
    “I’m feared in every girls’ school in the country.”

    He was in his seventies then, but his tastes hadn’t changed. The police are investigating cases dating from 1957 to 2006 — or three generations of schoolgirls….”
