  •  I know, I know, and excuse my naiveté (none)
    in writing as I was listening to the spinmeisters doing their thing.  But my reaction to this one has been almost visceral...I just KNOW that there is more to this decision than any of us fully understand yet.

     I grow more fearful of this President and his pals every day, and each move they make seems to be more arrogant and self-serving than the last. I've never been one to take much stock in conspiracy theories, but  lately I find myself suspecting that even the most mundane decisions this administration makes are potentially dangerous and destructive.  So when they make such an obviously strange choice in nominating Ms. Mier, even in the tradition of the Bush "buddy network," I just know in my gut that there is some malevolence behind it.  In my quest to try to figure out what that particular malevolence may be about, I offered up the idea that it may be part of a grand game of  "CYA" at the highest level...I should have waited to return to rational thought before posting...mea culpa....
