Obama goes Caligula one better

Caligula is said to have promised to make his horse a consul; Obama has promised to make a jackass Secretary of Defense.

Aw, now I'm all confused. I thought the jackass was the new Secretary of State and that Hagel was the dumbass.

/Hard to tell the asses without a scorecard.

When Huey Long was elected to the Senate from Louisiana, one of his political enemies there groused: At least Caligula sent both halves of his horse to the Senate.

No, Lurch is the new SoS, the DoD nominee is the Jackass.

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?

Obama is dumb like a fox to choose senators and former senators to be his fools / tools. The Senate will always OK one of their own no matter how stupid the person or bad for the country. Club rules.

Yep. These clowns are all our best, and brightest.

Pray for our country. Everyday.
