    szubin is a moron. there is no scorn too great for the fools who needlessly capitulated to iran. they held all the cards and they played it as if they had nothing. the mullahs could not believe their good fortune in having obama and clowns like kerry, sherman & szubin on the other side of the table. a self-inflicted defeat of monumental, truly historical proportions. devastating.
