Little Boots And Little Barry
Caligula is said to have promised to make his horse a consul; Obama has promised to make a jackass Secretary of Defense.
So many people [even some of the Left In America] are shaking their heads over the nomination of Chuckie Hagel, but methinks Paco Enterprises commentator Spiny Norman is onto something:
I think Obama nominated an incompetent Peter Principle archtype, fully expecting he’d be rejected, so that he could then nominate a more like-minded Alinskyite to carry out his "mission" – who would otherwise also be rejected – but will now look reasonable by comparison.
Or am I giving Skeeter too much credit?
Only Valerie Jarrett knows for sure, Spiny.
Caligula: [to an unruly crowd] If you only had one neck, I’d hack it through!
