So the Republicans have filibustered Hagel. I don’t expect this to last. I mean, are Republicans really going to stick to the standard that complete dummies aren’t allowed in important government positions? Seems like the ship sailed on that a long long time ago. I covered a lot of this in my New York Post column on Susan Rice I did a while back; I mean, are we really going to pretend that non-dummies are an option here?
Let’s just face reality here: Obama is going to keep the government filled with complete idiots who will be giant, dimwitted obstacles to any sort of success we might want to achieve as a nation. It’s like we had a difficulty selection for the next four years, and we chose “Nightmare.” We’re not going to be plowing through things; it’s going to be a moment to moment fight for survival. But think of how fit and skilled we’ll be for when one day we decide we don’t want a horrible useless idiot in charge of government. We’ll be on easy street! Or completely shell-shocked from the horrors we just went through. I dunno, but let’s all pretend to be positive.
Anyway, this all seems really cruel to the hapless boob Hagel; judging by his stuttering testimony, he probably has no idea what’s going on right now and is very scared and confused. So just go ahead and give Obama his first choice dummy. And then let’s just bunker down and get through this.
