"Danny Glover has started a petition at MoveOn urging President Obama to nominate Paul Krugman for Secretary of the Treasury. " ****************** When I heard this, I fell to the floor, doubled up with spasms and gales of laughter. Good laughs are good for the soul, and the physical body. It's not that I don't agree with much of what Krugman writes. He talks liberal economic sanity to the powers that be..speaking truth to power. It is often the political naiveté.of the liberal community...the true believers that gets my funny bones a creaking. It's naive to believe that Barack could nominate a Treasury Sec. that is not vetted by Wall Street; and the Street would demand that Krugman shave off his beard before being seriously recommended. LOL. ************ The rumor is that Barack is going to nominate Chuck Hegal for Defense Sec by next week. Hegal was right about our mis-adventures in Iraq and Afghan. In fact, the current political situation in Iraq shows increased instability. Iraq is likely to evolve into a Hussain-type authoritarian system. How else do you keep the Sunnis, Shiites, and Kerds under one government?
