If Ahmar is interested, I believe a position as White House spokesman has opened up. He seems to have the right temperament for the job.

"If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind."
