Ever play that game with yourself where you wonder where an idea came from? Today some of the pundits were talking about which campaign promise would be fulfilled first and more than one expected it will be to close Guantanamo. This leads to where are we going to put terorists while they are awaiting trial. We then take a sharp turn and talk about trials and how much they would cost, and what happens if a panel or whoever is going to judge them decides to let them go and here they are--drug runners from Mexico is one thing which might result in some violence but the terrorists have no other skills, right?
So let's go back to figuring out where they will be housed while all these lawyers are doing their thing. Hmmmmm. I know! We'll put them in the red states. All in one place? Distributed among them? Which states gave us the most trouble during the election? Aha! We'll have a lottery. Then we can't be blamed for playing favorites or punishing anyone. And that's the way it went today getting from point A to point B.
Another random thought: Now that we have Hillary for Sec of State, who would be the most logical choice for National Security Advisor? How about Colin Powell so we can show some of our famous bipartisanship. And to complete the triumverate we need to have someone who would fit as U S Ambassador to the United Nations. Whatever happened to that Jordan guy who was always next to Bill Clinton? Anyway you slice it, can you think of anyone on the left who has the moxie to negotiate with some of the sleaze balls in the world who are living it up at the UN?
Now that the festivities are over, it's time for all of us to get serious and discuss the issues. One of my kids called to talk about the Pelosi rules not to let Republicans have a voice on the floor of the House. We'll see what we can find.
As Tiny Tim says, God bless us everyone! We need all the help we can get.
