Presidental Comings and Goings

From here

President Elect Obama has named his national security team. As many predicted, Hilary Clinton has been nominated as Secretary of State.
The rest of the team :
keeping Robert M. Gates, the current defense secretary, for whatever reason
Gen. James L. Jones will be national security adviser (NATO experience, which was expected to go to Dennis Blair and his 32 years of Naval intelligence.)
Gov. Janet Napolitano of Arizona homeland security chief (Gee, I guess disbanding Homeland SSecurity is right out Mr. President Elect? Fucker.)
Eric Holder Attorney general (former deputy AG during the Reno era)
Susan Rice ambassador to the United Nations (and until recently, his foreign policy advisor).

Oh, and Billy boy spoke.

“As an American, I am thankful that President-elect Barack Obama has asked Hillary to be Secretary of State and that she has accepted. As her husband, I am deeply proud.
She is the right person for the job of helping to restore America’s image abroad, end the war in Iraq, advance peace and increase our security, by building a future for our children with more partners and fewer adversaries, one of shared responsibilities and opportunities.
She has already earned the respect of foreign leaders and diplomats through her work to promote human rights and the empowerment of women through access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. And Americans know, from her leadership in the Senate on national security, that she will always put the security, values and the interests of our people first.
In her service to the people of New York and our nation, Hillary has demonstrated the knowledge, passion, resilience, and capacity to learn that our country needs at this critical time. She loves being a Senator from New York, but as she has in all the thirty-seven years I’ve known her, she answered the call to serve. I commend President-Elect Obama for asking her to be a part of a great national security team. America will be well-served.”

STFU Bill, you’re not President anymore. You don’t get to-
oh wait.
Bill Clinton mentioned for wife’s senate seat.

Obama has released names of donors for the change over here
(Should I just back the list up to my hard drive now?)

The (NOT making this name up) Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism (which wasn’t founded until last year) justifies it’s no doubt expensive congressional budget by saying scary things that contain no actual new data.
Fear mongering. It’s what’s for dinner.

I wish I had more to say about the situation in India, but after a certain point, it becomes difficult to filter out what actually happened v. what four or five utterly different news agencies says happened.

On the lighter side……
So I’m reading my blogs and I come across this little gem ::
George Bush to receive commendation for efforts to fight AIDS

Relax, the world hasn’t gone any more insane. It’s an award from Rick Warren – whom Bushie frequently cites in his examples of “faith based initiatives”. Like this one.
Bush hailing the power to quit controlled substances. Funny.

Two guys pulling each other off in the bathroom. Just like Larry Craig. Nothing to see here. Move along. Also, George Bush is a mental midget. Which I’ve always wanted to say.
