Mark this day on your calendars, folks. For today, Chris Hayes has some harsh words for the Obama administration:
This is seriously some shameful sh*t: http://t.co/08vHa1vHwT

From Talking Points Memo:
A bundler for President Barack Obama who is nominated as the next U.S. ambassador to Argentina said Thursday that he’s never actually been to that country.
During a Senate Foreign Relations Committee confirmation hearing for political consultant Noah Mamet, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) asked “Mr. Mamet, have you been to Argentina?”
“Senator, I haven’t had the opportunity yet to be there,” Mamet replied. “I’ve traveled pretty extensively around the world, but I haven’t yet had a chance.”
Sounds like Mamet, echoing Max Baucus, might be “no real expert” on Argentina. Yeah, he’s totally qualified for the job.
@chrislhayes I mean, he couldn't have gone there the weekend after he was nominated?

That’s fair, but how about some perspective?

We’ll take Hayes more seriously when he’s willing to turn in his lapdog collar.
