According to Fr Z, Obama has decided to insult the Maltese people by appointing Douglas Kmiec U.S. ambassador to the island. Malta is one of the last pro-life bastions of Europe - what a coincidence that Obama should have decided to send in a man who has done so much damage in his own country as a Catholic apologist for Obama.
One commentator wrote in Fr Z's combox:
Why is this happening? I do not think Kmiec will like Malta, nor do I think that the Maltese will like him. They are highly intelligent, shrewd people who know a horse from a mule.
Quite. I have a huge amount of respect for the Maltese people, with their history of heroism and self-sacrifice in defending the Truth, but the most dangerous enemies are the ones you cannot easily spot. The Maltese can certainly tell a horse from a mule. I just hope they see this wolf in sheep's clothing for what he is.
