My option would be "Worst" or at least "one of the worst" - right down there with Harding and Hoover.

The ports deal wasn't about selling control to the UAE - it was selling power to a private business based in UAE, you've misstated that. Certain lawmakers of both parties made a poltical stunt out of it, pandering to racist and xenophobic fear with their "national security" mongering - while spooking a foreign business away from an American investment. :grumpy:

While we're at it, "Harriet Meyers" is a prostitute in Vegas - you were probably thinking of "Harriet Meirs".

It would also help, when stealing "great or greatest?" jokes from comedian Stephen Colbert, to have the decency to give him due credit. Otherwise, people might get confused as to who's idea it was. :devil:

Admin edit: Astronuc is fully capable of speaking for himself, regardless of the (rather poor) joke your thread intends to communicate.
