An embarrassment to the country

Yet another federal minister demonstrating to the world what a lightweight he is.

How on earth Brendan Nelson is considered competent to be Defence Minister I can't imagine. Now we have him furiously U-turning over his earlier ill-advised and premature pronouncements on the death of Private Jake Kovco.

He joins a list of equally ill-equipped appointees to ministerial positions - Downer, Vanstone, Ruddock...what an embarrassment to the country they are.

Are they appointed because they're so lightweight they can't be a threat to Howard's leadership, or are they really the best we've got?
