    Madeline Half-wit.. uh, Dim-bulb, uh, whatever.

    The one who danced with Kim Jong Il and gave him a nuclear plant and food and medicine for his people.

    The one who decided to bomb Serbian civilian targets for false reasons - the thousands upon thousands of Kosovar bodies in mass graves that were never found.

    The one who was confused for a char-woman.

    The one who chased after Arafat from one of the now-proven useless Pali-Israel negotiations.
