If you don't like DC.s latest It Girl, Neera Tanden,
you are an anti-Asian, anti-strong woman bigot. I guess I better fess up, Guilty as Charged. The Biden admin is pulling out all the stops for this particular lame appointment. The Hill has a good run down of this intrigue:
Sheesh. I get it that this is a political payoff, by why that office? Can't she be ambassador to some inconsequential country we don't like very much? She could go to parties, have an FB about her glamorous and exotic life to make all her girlfriends jealous and let the Station Chief run the embassy. It is not like OMB has a fancy reputation or having that appointment can get you invited to the best parties. But, evidently, here is where the line is to be drawn. We, the Clintonistas claim our right to appoint unqualified apparatchiks just like the Republicans do.
At this point, about the only thing the Democrats have going for them is that they are, marginally, less incompetent than the other party, and now they want to throw away that one last advantage.
Flint has lead laced water, and the H20 on Capital Hill contains LSD? Maybe that explains why folks who are, maybe not great, but OK, in their home neighborhoods become delusional when they get to Washington.
