Chuck Hagel is the New Satan

A highlight from the Kerry confirmation hearing (which was FULL OF HIGHLIGHTS for those of us who loved John Kerry which I think is just me and Hillary at this point) last week:

Let this serve as a lesson for every other Republican out there. No matter how long you’ve been a Republican, or what you’ve done as a Republican, or how you’ve refrained (mostly) from pointing out that your own party is bugfuck insane and who are these people and who let them in here anyway, the minute a Democrat says something nice about you, or gives you a job such as Secretary of Something, you become HITLTER TIMES INFINITY and it is time to take you down:

GOLD PLATED TRIPS FROM LOBBYISTS!

(And suddenly we hate Pentagon contracts and benefits to private companies and also conflicts of interest? Suddenly this is a problem?)

I don’t love Hagel at all, think he was kind of a crap choice and wonder why we couldn’t find a Democrat to deal with this job, but it is immensely amusing to watch Republicans throw somebody over the side like this. And I can’t believe more people don’t watch how this kind of thing happens and think twice about signing up for an outfit that treats its members like this.

    And the irony that Obama by nominating these repubs is showing bipartisanship while being criticized for being the ultimate left-winger.

    The big bad evil guy always turns on his minions–always.
    If you’re not sure if your current boss is a BBEG, look around for long-time veteran minions. Compare that number to the number of minions you’ve seen being turned into monsters or casually discarded when they get in the way.

    I like the pick. Most of the Democrats who were listed a possibles are much more hawkish than Hagel because of the pre-Obama soft on commies/terrists days.

    Oh, hell no. I love me some John Kerry, and have for a very long time.
