Well, I have to admit I was confused I thought it was a confirmation hearing for United States Secretary of Defense but it seems it was for Israel's Secretary of Defense. Silly me!

Weigel's Title---a classic

What Nancy said and if I had been Hagel, I would have stood up and said "fuck alla you, you fucking fucks. I don't need this goddamn job, nor do I want to have to answer to intelligence-free wastes of skin like what I see here. I'm going to the bar."

Well, they sat on their wingnuttery through the Kerry hearings. So the pressure was gonna explode somewhere.

Like y'all said about Sec for Defense of Israel.

obviously hagel is TOO SOFT. i say stealth achieved.

The object of a 'confirmation hearing' is to get confirmed. Fighting with the ones who will vote is not the best way to achieve that goal.

I suspect the real Chuck Hagel with appear in front of President Obama, right hand raised, left on a bible, in the weeks to come.

You need to explain to the non- Greeks... what a malaka is so everyone knows how its fits Ted Cruz to a tee.


I googled it. Malaka is a synonym for a)wanker or b)asshole. Can be used as a friendly jibe or I think appropriately in the instance with Cruz not so friendly.

The malaka of the week is a semi-regular feature of mine here at First Draft so most of our regular readers know what it means. Loula, you must be Greek since only one of my people would say non-Greek.
