Potential E.P.A. pick?

Could it be RFK Jr.? Heaven help us:

According to the Washington Post, Barack Obama is "looking at possibly appointing Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to head the Environmental Protection Agency, according to sources familiar with the process, though he is eying several other prominent environmentalists as well." Kennedy is a well-known 2004 election conspiracy theorist who is under the impression that we are all being held hostage in fascist America. Ho-hum. So would you be surprised to learn that RFK II is also a Chavista? Of course not!

Check out the video to watch the Kook of Camelot argue in favor of the nationalization of oil companies and argue that Chavez is the "kind of leader my father and President Kennedy were looking for" in Latin America. Yes, Bobby Kennedy, former Tailgunner Joe McCarthy staffer, and Jack Kennedy, who oversaw the invasion of Cuba, would have surely loved Hugo Chavez.

This is Liz Allen moonbat territory here, people. And face it -- if Obama does pick Kennedy, he'll only make the GOP's job that much easier for 2010 and beyond.

UPDATE (11/9 at 8:37am): Volokh has more on why RFK Jr. would be a mess.
