Well, hell, who’s going to stop the Kenyan-born sock puppet? The RINOs in the Senate? And if he’s not approved, the handlers of the sock-puppet will wait for a recess and appoint him anyway.
So, cave in, kiss the sock-puppet’s ass, and get it over with. Boehner does it in the House, so why not do it in the Senate,
“Most Radical Cabinet Nominee,” there’s some competition for that title with this Administration.
Paging Rand Paul.

The president also noted that as Secretary of Labor in the State of Maryland, Perez fought for increasing the minimum wage to a "living wage" an initiative that Obama championed in his most recent State of the Union address.
Perez's selection is expected to garner strong support from civil rights groups and organized labor, who have said they are ready for a fight if his nomination faces opposition from Republicans. AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka and NAACP president Ben Jealous were both in attendance at Monday's ceremony.
"At a time when our politics tilts so heavily toward corporations and the very wealthy, our country needs leaders like Tom Perez to champion the cause of ordinary working people," Trumka said in a statement.
