I started thinking, last weeks ‘Douche of the Week’ was Ken Lewis, President & CEO of Bank of America. Perhaps I should make this a weekly thing.
Well folks, here is this weeks ‘Douche of the Week’
It’s Rick Santelli of CNBC. Watch.
What a Douche.
Till next time…
This woman deserves our scorn.
Till next time…
With Former Sen. Tom Daschle out of the running for Health and Human Services Department because of painfully obvious tax issues the ball seems to be dropping towards Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius for the post. A senior administration official leaked that information and of course the press has been covering it.
We know that Obama hasn’t had an easy first month. The confirmations haven’t gone as particularly smooth in many instances and the ‘loyal’ opposition is anything but. I must completely disagree with the administrations interest in pursuing Gov. Sebelius for this position. In the instance of Tom Daschle, he was a consultant for the healthcare industry after he left the senate. Though he would have brought a world of knowledge to HHS and health policy, I feel he was just too close to the industry and am relieved he was withdrew his nomination. With regards to Gov. Sebelius she was an insurance commissioner before becoming Gov. Is this change we can believe in? I find it to be settling for the lesser of two evils. I am in no way attacking Gov. Sebelius ability as a Governor. In fact she is amazing and has been steering conservative Kansas through this budget crisis. Her place is not in executing and formulating healthcare policy.
What I find reprehensible is the complete shut out of Gov. Howard Dean, MD (yes he has a Medical Degree!). For all I know he may have some legitimate reasons for not wanting and has been vetted, but from the sources I’ve talked with have said, he has been absent from consideration. This could be because of the friction between Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Gov. Dean.
“Medicine is and should always be science based – not driven by ideology.” – Gov. Dean
Dickipedia has a recent entry for the reclusive/strange/stupid celebrity Joaquin Phoenix
It should also be noted there is an entry of my personal favorite politician Howard Dean
The entry has the best quote ever…
“And we’re going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan, and then we’re going to Washington, D.C., to take back the White House! YYAAAARRGGGHHHHBYAWAWAWWWAWHAWHHAHHWHAAAHWWHWW IAMCRAZYANDWILLMURDERYOURCHILRDENWHILETHEYSLEEPWWAGRRRAWWWW!!!”- Dr. Howard Dean.
“So you don’t subscribe to Rush Limbaugh’s “I hope he fails” school of thought?” asked interviewer Dan Gilgoff.
“That was a terrible thing to say,” Robertson responded. “I mean, he’s the president of all the country. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. And if he doesn’t, it hurts us all. Anybody who would pull against our president is not exactly thinking rationally.”
West Virginia legislators should expect a push for a constitutional amendment ruling out same-sex marriage, in the absence of new programs or big-ticket proposals during this budget-conscious session.The Family Policy Council of West Virginia began the drive last year, when it unsuccessfully tried to pressure Gov. Joe Manchin to add the topic to a special session.
From Del. Webster –
House Judiciary Chairwoman Carrie Webster, D-Kanawha, expect lawmakers will instead be busy finding ways to shore up the state’s economy as the recession continues.”Our focus almost exclusively should be on doing as much as we can with what little we have,” Webster said. “We need to keep people working. If we have ended the session on issues like that … I think we will have done a disservice to the public.”
