General Pace just called. He wasn't crazy about that last post, the one where Divine sings " Walk Like a Man. " Screw him.

That's a figure of speech, General. Don't go branding this blog " Immoral. "

What is it with these guys? Pace, Gonzales. The top brass at Walter Reed. Scooter. I've heard them called The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight. That's off target. This crew has trouble figuring out where the guns are at.

Take Pace for example. What was he thinking? There's a don't ask don't tell policy in the army. Because of that policy, there are probably a lot of gay troops serving in Iraq. What are they to make of Pace's comment? Some are probably on their second or third tours over there. Reading and hearing about the hypocracy over here. Hearing folks say, " I support the troops. " Yet not seeing any evidence of that. Now this. Being called " Immoral " by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "

It's yet another public relations nightmare on a long list of very bad dreams.

And this Gonzales thing. Chuck Schumer's calling for his resignation, so he can't be all bad. Firing nine U.S. Attorney's wasn't a terrible idea. Firing them all at the same time was.

Back in the early 1960s, J.F.K. thought long and hard about who he should name to the post of Attorney General. The name he came up with was his brother, Bobby. Attorneys General and U.S. Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president. Schumer crying " Politics! " is absurd. The dance that's danced around these appointments is as political as it gets.

J.F.K. picked his own brother to be A.G. But he was smart enough not to name Ethel, Teddy, Peter Lawford and four or five of his first cousins to cabinet posts on the very same day.

Where the hell is that pistol?
