Shaq would be perfect for the BRIC countries, considering how many of those he's put up from the free throw line.

Since Shaw has an actual Doctorate (Ed,D) and is intelligent I'd be okay with that.

As the last surviving member of Billy Blank's hardcore Tai-Bo studio I advocate complete fitness combined with pseudo-military and Brazilian dance moves. We will tone your booty with Ayurvedic oils and the ghost of Walter Matthau.

Former NBA players on State Department business  It's just a coincidence that our president likes to play basketball.

WNBA might work better here... (holy shiat they have a roll) ... Basketball Diplomacy or any other sports diplomcy is laughable but there is a fooot in the door factor if nothing else. When there is no common ground make some shiat up.

Those are photo ops President Obama doesn't actually know how to play basketball nor can he shoot a basket to save his life. He actually knows very little about sports and it's obvious when you listen to him talk about it.

Does Shaq know anything about FARC? I've never seen him in the politics tab.

Kareem Abdul Jabar for Palestinian diplomat?

He doesn't really run down court and doesn't really try except during the play-offs.

And who do we have in the lineup for Kenya?

Oh, come on now, guys, he doesn't even play basketball! Well, not professionally, anyway.

Some might call that proof that he knows FARC well enough to know better.

Larry Byrd can have Northern Ireland.

I don't know that this is really new, I remember Jordan being the one stable country running all the negotiations and exercising a lot of influence on everyone in the region since the '80s at least.

I mean, maybe not that noticeable from a US or European perspective since they use their power to calm things down instead of making trouble like certain other nations in the region... but really, it's just Jordan and Saudi Arabia that have been the two nations in the region with meaningful influence beyond their own borders for quite a while.

Could it really be much worse than a bunch of over-paid, fat, lazy, did I say over-paid?, serious wasters of our money, fat-ass, old, white guys sitting in really nice offices, driving really nice cars, eating at really nice resturtaunts, fat, lazy, tax sucking, decision and policy makers?
