New Cabinet

Larry's got a great summary of the new list of Presidential appointments.

So how is Barack going to run the country? I don’t know, but we can probably get some clues by who he is surrounding himself by.

His Global Warming (sorry, since it isn’t actually warming, we’ll call it Climate Change now, so it can still be a big crisis) Czar is a card carrying member of the Socialist leadership. Literally. That’s not exaggerating. And even then, her husband is a lobbyist for big oil companies, because in typical liberal tradition, there’s no such thing as hypocrites.

Eric Holder was a lousy #2 to the worst Attorney General in US history, and was the architect of such Justice Department highlights as kidnapping Elian Gonzalez with a SWAT team. As the new boss of the ATF, I’m sure that will be just awesome.

Timothy Geithner is going to be the new Treasury Secretary, which after George Bush’s idiotic bailout nonsense is now the most powerful person in Washington. I feel extra warm and fuzzy about this because Geithner doesn’t like to pay his taxes either, but then again, I’m not the head of the IRS. It’s okay though, because he’s apologized for not paying $34,000. I’m sure if I ‘accidentally’ didn’t pay $34,000 in taxes, the IRS will totally be cool with an apology and I’ll get a pass.

Rahm Emanuael as Chief of Staff? Sure, why the heck not? This was a man so slimy that Bill Clinton found him personally distasteful. He comes from the same political machine where half of their governors from the last 50 years are either serving time, or soon will be.

And Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State… Well, at least she’s tougher than Barack, so when Vladimir Putin and Hugo Chavez are sexually violating the US over the next few years, she’ll totally stand up for us… unless there’s some good money to be made from Indonesian coal bribery or something. Nope, our foreign affairs are in fine hands.

Oh, and buy his book. It's worth it.
