Busted flush

President Obama’s choice for ambassador to France, investment banker and (surprise!) big Democratic fundraiser , Marc Lasry, has pulled his name from consideration:
The Manhattan billionaire President Obama wanted to appoint ambassador to France turned down the prestigious position over ties to an alleged Russian mob-run poker ring that was laundered through a Carlyle hotel art gallery, sources told The Post.
Too bad. Lasry is probably the least ethically-challenged person Obama has tried to bring into government.

Barry, the water you happen to be walking on is ice, and it’s beginning to crack.

Until I read this, I was willing to give the benefit of doubt to Holder. But this is a deliverate act to thwart America.

It just beggars belief! WTF does he think? the poor misunderstood simply responded to his persecution and the FBI are the enemy (of wotzername's DHS).

Sorry, that's an Hispanic B in deliverate.

I'm not at all surprised, er, Vobert.

If there was genuine transparency in this administrations, "ha-ha!" would be appended to "Department of Justice" on Holder's business cards.

From what I can tell, Professor Reynolds thinks he should have been "Mirandized" before he was even loaded into the ambulance. I'm not a daily Instapundit reader, so I would be genuinely pleased to be corrected on this.

Does that mean Anna Wintour is still in the running for an ambassadorship? OMG

I hear the Libyan spot is open.

Gee, I wonder why nobody noticed the hubris during the firstpresidential term.

I would suggest the Prof's view of 'Miranda, etc' is rather more nuanced.
