Are you sure Hillary lost? - Update

You couldn't make this stuff up.

I wonder if here has been a coup that we didn't hear about?

Now we find that Eric Holder, Deputy AG under Clinton will be Hussein's Attorney General. Just to make it even more old style, Holder signed off on Clinton's last gasp pardon of Mark Rich, tax fraud fugitive who gave up his citizenship. I wonder how many questions that will get from the Demos in his confirmation hearing...

And even more of the old team...

The sources said the Obama transition team is still debating over who should serve under Holder in the key post of deputy attorney general. One top candidate, favored by Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and other former Clinton White House officials, is Elena Kagan, dean of the Harvard Law School and a former lawyer in the White House counsel’s office under Clinton. Another top candidate, favored by other Obama advisors, is David Ogden, a former chief of staff to Attorney General Janet Reno, who is currently heading Obama’s Justice Department transition team. Kagan brings legal policy credentials; Ogden has more experience in the Justice Department trenches.


Wish I had said this.

UPDATE AT 7:02 A.M. ET: From The Politico: Gregory B. Craig, a well-known Washington lawyer who quarterbacked President Bill Clinton’s impeachment defense, has been chosen White House counsel by President-elect Barack Obama, according to Democratic officials.

COMMENT: And Rahm Emanuel is chief of staff. And Hillary may go to the State Department. You know, all they need is that chubby girl with the blue dress... No, no, no, I did not write that. I absolutely did not.

Obama shows his colors....and intelligence level

Okay boys and girls. You wanted to see what the Idiot In Chief will do. Well, he tells you.

Obama continues that "too often, Washington has failed to show the same kind of leadership. That will change when I take office. My presidency will mark a new chapter in America’s leadership on climate change that will strengthen our security and create millions of new jobs in the process.

"That will start with a federal cap and trade system," he says. "We will establish strong annual targets that set us on a course to reduce emissions to their 1990 levels by 2020 and reduce them an additional 80 percent by 2050. Further, we will invest $15 billion each year to catalyze private sector efforts to build a clean energy future. We will invest in solar power, wind power, and next generation biofuels. We will tap nuclear power, while making sure it’s safe. And we will develop clean coal technologies.

All of this when more and more scientists are saying it doesn't exist. That the world is actually cooling.... yet it is full bore ahead for the dunderheads we elect.

And I hate to bring this up, but can anyone tell me where these millions of new jobs will come from? I mean failing to press forward on new oil sources will allow OPEC and the speculators to drive the price back to $146 a barrel. That will finish off the economy. The cap and trade BS will double the price of coal and run your electric bill up two to three times what it currently is.

I mean, how stupid can these people be? Survey says:

Very, very, very, stupid.
