Ice Skating Uphill – the new White House appointees

Yet another mental midget gets a choice Obamaland appointment – Would-be DOD chief over Afghanistan: War ‘is winnable’.
And this guy hasn’t even started the job yet.

The Army general chosen to take over as top commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan told senators Tuesday he believes the war can be won if a proper counterinsurgency campaign is undertaken.

No, really, ignore two thousand years of history telling us that no one has ever managed to take the region (let alone hold it), let’s just site those wacky madcap Soviets and then know, just know we can do better, because we are Americans…..
Seriously, is the Obama administration using a Ouija board to select their appointees of late?

Well, let’s see. I expect that a pretty good total train wreck could come out of a collision between the Sotomayor appointment and the signal to noise discrepancy created in the wake of some religious wingnut on one of their little crusades again.
Though, on that last count, I’m amazed that so many otherwise god- (read: lobbyist) fearing Republicans have actually had the gibbering nod towards sentience to come out against blowing people away. Don’t they normally put pictures of the shooters on their websites and call them patriots or some other jingoistic flag toting thing or other?
