Susan LaVine Just Became My Favorite Ambassador

This is an awesome story that you can be sure some Christian theocrat will throw a fit about. Susan LaVine, the new U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland and Lichtenstein, swore her oath of office not on a Bible but on an electronic copy of the U.S. Constitution — opened to the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. Here’s a picture:

    Even if he did end badly

    But, yeah. Susan LaVine, is pretty damn awesome too – and she’s even real.

    Fucken well done! Good for her. More power to her. Nicely done.

    How do you manage being an ambassador to two countries at once?

  • Dave, ex-Kwisatz Haderach

    Kiss my pouch Centauri! G’Kar was clearly the superior ambassador.

    Seems to me, it makes far more sense to swear on the constitution than the bibble anyways. Well done Susan LaVine.

    Sure a thumbing of the nose at Switzerland – they didn’t give women the vote until 1971!

    If I recall correctly, Switzerland handles all of Liechtenstein’s foreign affairs, so I assume the Ambassador to Switzerland is automatically also the Ambassador to Liechtenstein.

    Is that her husband in the photo? Or Stephen Colbert?

    Spelling Nazi here. Her name is Suzan G. LeVine.

    Well Liechtenstein is so small that if other countries had embassies there, there’d be no room for the inhabitants!

    Typical Ed, falling for the Democrat Party line*. The so-called “Ambassador” “swearing” on an electronic copy of the “U.S. Constitution” is really to distract from the child’s arm that Joe Biden has growing out if his crotch.

    I have to side with Dave here. G’Kar was far superior — as ambassador and fighter.

    Though I give honor to Vir for his Schindlerian ploy, among other things.

    Very nice to read and see something like this.

    “Kiss my pouch Centauri! G’Kar was clearly the superior ambassador.”

    Aren’t we forgetting that Spock’s father was an important ambassador as was Spock himself who opened a back channel dialogue with the Romulans.

    If it’s Switzerland wouldn’t the 2nd amendment be more appropriate?

    Love it! Here in Canada you don’t have to use a relgious text either.

    Hardly. The Leafs lineup is a religious text!

    I you ever needed an example of a deity that treats the faithful poorly, you need look no further than the Hockey gods and Leafs fans.

    For the record, I am a Leafs-Stanley-Cup-Win agnostic.
