Dog Days, Redeux

The President's first 100 days have been marked by many challenges, decisions, and appointments. Certainly the most important ones are being handled first. Iraqi policy, tilling the vegetable garden, G-20 meetings, hugging the Sheik, firing the CEO of GM, jamming with the Queen on her new iPod, watching North Korean rocket launches (yes, they can accomplish what our favorite Italian waiter has been unable to), corporate bailouts, sniping pirates, and easter egg hunts.

And, finally, this week, the President made it down the list to select his choice of...First Dog.

Kind of tells you what he thinks about our favorite agency, doesn't it?

Unfortunately it does.

However, you have to admire a little the sheer Machiavellian cunning of just standing back and letting the Emperor's minions do the deed for him and then take the credit for sweeping in after all is destroyed and 'cleaning up the mess'.

But the President *had* a great candidate NASA Administrator.

Senator Ballast tubed him.
