The First Rule of Washington Club is Do Not Criticize Washington Club
In reply to Ace:
I'm not sure what Chuck Hagel has against Jews, but I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess it has something to do with a grade curve.
L'Affaire Hagel - and the whiny butthurt of Scarborough et al. over his unfair "grilling" by uppity lessers -serves as another example of Washington's caste system privilege. Once a Beltway Brahmin - Hagel, Kerry, Hillary Clinton - your sinecure is forever safe. The ultimate example is Jamie Gorelick, the unremovable Typhoid Mary behind every government disaster of the last 15 years. The media maintains its own parallel (and synergistic) caste system, bestowing eight figure salaries on pedantic drones with 3% of the viewership of Honey Boo-Boo. And where they intersect, you get Joe Scarborough. And Elliot Spitzer.
And these people have the nerve to joke about Southerners as "inbred."
