Here’s John McCain questioning George Tsunis, who is President Obama’s nominee to be the next ambassador to Norway. Tsunis could have at last taken the time to look up Norway info on Wikipedia before trying to answer questions:

John McCain wins the week’s “dripping sarcasm” award for his comment at the end about the “incredibly highly qualified” group of nominees.

While watching Tsunis’ responses I couldn’t help but think of this.

How did Tunis even get nominated? The usual way, as Ed Morrissey wrote at Hot Air:

But Olivier found his true credentials. As a bundler for Obama in 2012, Tsunis raised almost a million dollars for the campaign, and donated $300,000 to the Democratic Party. Ironically, Tsunis raised $50,000 for McCain in 2008 before becoming a Democrat in 2009 after McCain lost the election.

From the sound of things, Tsunis’ real-world qualification for that gig is that he once rode on an elevator with Thor Heyerdahl while “Norwegian Wood” played on Muzak.
