How wrong can one person be?

You can't make this stuff up.  The man who predicted Dow 36,000 at the height of the tech bubble is now going to be America's goodwill ambassador to the Muslim world.

Yup, James K. Glassman is taking the job that Bush confidante Karen Hughes gave up recently after accomplishing precisely nothing in terms of burnishing the U.S. government's image overseas.

Someone needs to let him know that no amount of slick marketing and packaging can overcome a lousy product, i.e., U.S. foreign policy.

Spectacularly wrong then, spectacularly wrong now.
