“I just sensed that I was not going to be good at being anything other than myself,” he said.
You selfish asshole. I can think ofa couple hundred thousand people who’ve been asked to carry out views not their own by their president, without the option of turning up on CNN going all, “Oh, man, it’s just so hard being a grown-up,” and they’ve managed not to wank about it in public, so maybe not so much with the aggrieved martyr act, you dick.
Serving as Commerce Secretary is not the hardest job the president can ask you to do. Quit if you want, before suffering the awful indignity of sitting in a chair while douchebags with “Senator” before their names ask you questions, but don’t be all, “I’m just too integritous and awesome for the job, is all” when the truth is you just don’t want to do it. I am so sick of wingnut WATB-tude masquerading as saintly forebearance, I swear, I could punch something.
