Pompeo Confirmed, Flies Away

(H/T: Scissorhead Skinny-D)

Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell told us in no uncertain terms that he was going to bring up SOS-designate Mike Pompeo’s nomination for a full vote regardless of the Committee’s opinion.

Anyway, Committee member Rand Paul decided to give up his principled objections and gave his approval after some convo with Hair Fuhrer.  So, you know, Rand Paul: thanks for all the fish.

All of the Republicans who were present voted to confirm, along with all the Blue Dogs, most of whom are up for re-election this year in very red states.  We can forgive them their trespasses, as they say in all the reading material in Motel bedside stands in Possum Hollar.

Following the vote, Pompeo promptly left for a trip to Belgium, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. We are only guessing of course that he will be spotted slurping champagne in First Class, thumbing through Sotheby’s catalogs of office furnishings, sticky notes fluttering from many pages.

  3. If only we could contain the nuclear fallout to Possum Hollar.

    Pompeo is an unholy GOP-Lab made freankenstein monster of Dominionist and Koch Tool. He’s off to tell Netanyahu that we’ll defend Israel to the last American, Tehran will be glassed over, and go ahead and fire up the ovens to deal with the Palestinian Problem go ahead and keep doing what you want to the Occupied Territories and Warsaw on the Med Gaza, then to tell Darth Crown Prince MBS he’s all on board for cranking oil to $100 a barrel.

    If your goal is to get the the world to blow up and rapture all the jeeboids to hebbin, a good old economic shock happening in an atmosphere of heightened virulent nationalism, saber rattling and white supremacy is just the ticket, baybee! Have a Blessed Day!.

    I’m sure the 0.01% like the Kochsuckers are confident they’ll be above the fray.

    At least Rex was simply venal, lazy and hated the State Department for blocking his oil deal with Russia.

    Mike P is a Troo Believer. It’s like putting Isis whackaloons in charge of the State Department.

  4. Rumor has it that each new cabinet member gets to spend on Stormy Unit on Sky Mall products, to goose the economy.

    Once again, literally like clockwork, Rand Paul aka Aqua Buddha takes a principled stand only to immediately give it up. The man appears to have no self-awareness still less a sense of embarrassment.
