So, speaking of septic tanks and what rises to the top, I see via AP that Don Evans, former Secretary of Commerce, is now the CEO of “The Forum,” a lobbying corporation that represents such fine upstanding corporate entities as Citigroup and JP Morgan. This “Forum” decided to not endorse aWol’s Alpo Accounts in March, but of course that’s a no-no. I suspect good ol’ Don will see to it that that changes, pronto. No doubt these financial service companies do need a little lobbying on their behalf—after all, it must have hurt profits to have Congress hand them their heads when they suggested that bankruptcy laws be “reformed” on the backs of the poor and sick. Oh, wait, sorry. That was what was supposed to happen, except that we’re living in Bizarro America.

In other startling news related to floaters on the public tank (Bolton), Tom Tomorrow of This Modern World notes that

Though Bolton supported the Vietnam War, he declined to enter combat duty, instead enlisting in the National Guard and attending law school after his 1970 graduation. "I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy," Bolton wrote of his decision in the 25th reunion book. "I considered the war in Vietnam already lost."

So he supported the war, but considered it already lost, and didn't want to die there himself.

And you wonder why the term "chickenhawk" is bandied about so frequently these days?

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the GOP B-team is still at work: GOP Operative Launches Anti-Hillary Site (CAUTION: Not suitable for children, at least not literate ones.)

And, heck, let’s end this nauseafest by suggesting that maybe the cops would have time to focus on murderers, child molesters, domestic violence perps and other real crimes if it wasn't for the fact that Marijuana behind 45 percent of U.S. drug arrests
