Malta was worth a conversion

President Obama has nominated Douglas Kmiec to be the U.S. ambassador to Malta. If the past is any guide, there’s a good chance that Malta will soon be described on someone’s website bio as a terribly important place attended to by a long and distinguished line of foreign diplomats.

UPDATE: A reader reminds me that the Knights of Malta is a prominent Catholic group that dates back to the crusades. So the nomination stikes me as a great move by Obama — he pleases Kmiec for services rendered without giving him anything of substance.
