Over at NRO’s Media Blog, Greg Pollowitz is concerned about the bona fides of Charles Rivkin, Obama’s nominee to be U.S. ambassador to Paris.

Noting that Rivkin ran W!ldbrain, which produces the excellent kids’ show Yo Gabba Gabba, and worked for Jim Henson, Pollowitz sniffs:

Muppets and DJ Lance Rock qualify one to be ambassador to France?

This is a game we can keep playing!

Craig Roberts Stapleton, ambassador to France 2005-2009: The Texas Rangers and Iron Chef qualify one to be ambassador to France?

Howard Leach, ambassador to France 2001-2005: Food-processing and opera fandom qualify one to be ambassador to France?

Why it’s almost as if this post were a political plum!
