Mark Kelly is an example of all that is distasteful with DC, our Congress, etc. He is considered the "heir apparent" for his wife's seat. Mark Kelly Seen as a Possible Heir to Gabrielle Giffords' Political Career
Heir.....based on what? Because he's married to her? Because he's doing the gun grab thing? Because......does it matter?
I watched some of the ABC round table this am with George Will et al. and was struck with just how out of sync I am with any of these people - whether it's the pundits or the politicians. They are the ruling class; we are the ruled.
In talking about the Hagel nomination/confirmation, it is considered a done deal. This is about showboating to keep him waiting. Will found it pathetic that it would be held up. If obama wants him, he should have him as SofDefense.
I'm sitting there thinking - then why do they bother to have hearings? The fact is - there is NO point to these hearings except to pretend they are doing due diligence, get a few sounds bites in for their next election. It is disgusting. >
We pay them for the priviledge to be ruled.
