A Spooky State Department Halloween

The US has a law that requires that aid funds be cut off to any organization that recognizes a Palestinian state, which takes effect following UNESCO’s doing so this past week. This is heavy-handed and purely punitive, obviously, but did the State Department have to announce this via a spokesperson who literally looks like a Sith Lord? Couldn’t they have selected someone less cartoonishly malevolent to deprive Palestinian children of Sesame Street out of spite?
