What a Great Appointment

Could anything be sweeter than President-elect Obama’s appointment of Army General Shinseki to head the Department of Veterans Affairs? I wonder if Rumsfeld’s head ached or actually exploded when he heard the news.

Best one yet. This tells veterans that Barry really gives a shit about them.

An outstanding choice and vindication for Shinseki who was dissed big time by Bushco asshats, thereby dissing all of veteran-dom.

I was really happy about this appointment. Veterans' issues have been ignored for too long.

here at chez bums we saw the appointment as a poke in the eye to w, or at least an upraised central digit. and of course a boon to vets.

I was happy about this appointment, too. He seems to me to be someone who actually cares about the rank-and-file soldiers who will stand up for their needs. That's part of the reason he was forced out during the Bush reign.
