Slipping one in below the radar...

William Robert Timken, Jr., come on down -- you've been nominated to be the next U.S. ambassador to Germany. Do you speak German? Ever served as a diplomat? Well, do you at least enjoy schadenfreude?

Timken was the finance co-chairman for W's campaign in Ohio. Oh Ohio. He runs some company with his name on the building. He's also a long-serving director of Diebold, the election machine maker. Considering all the activity gurgling around the White House these days, this might be the stealth nomination of the season.

Conspiracists: start your engines...
