With opponents like these...

I am particularly interested in and supportive of the nomination of Karen Hughes to be undersecretary of state for public diplomacy ... I believe that she is highly qualified because of her professional background, and, importantly, enjoys the full confidence of the president and the secretary of state.

She will bring new energy and creativity to our public diplomacy efforts. I commend the president for choosing her and persuading her to return to Washington, and I look forward to working with her for the next three years on this important foreign policy priority.
--Senator Joe Biden (formerly D-DE), quoted by Billmon.

I guess Joe figures that years of lying to the American public on behalf of Bush makes Hughes especially qualified to lie to the Muslim world on behalf of Bush.
