Weekend Roundup and Open Thread

James Clapper is named DNI by the President Obama. …… Interesting criticism from Kit Bond regarding Clapper’s background in the military (USAF). Bond and others are saying that Clapper’s nomination signals that Obama’s efforts in the War on Terror will continue to have the greater emphasis on law enforcement, and …”would make the position susceptible to influence by the Pentagon, which already controls the bulk of the classified intelligence budget.

Bond said Clapper has previously undermined efforts to strengthen the intelligence director position, largely to preserve the Defense Department’s sway over intelligence spending. wapo

GOM briefs: T-Tech researcher gets EPA approval on new absorbent material to be used in the Gulf ………….. Cap on the well offers hope.

Odds and ends: Minnesota Donk disparages Mississippi; from his ad, “If budget cuts were always the answer, then Mississippi would be a leader in this country,” … (Matt) Entenza said Minnesota has historically been near the top and Mississippi near the bottom on education and health care, “and now we’re falling down to that level.” Do tell. So the answer is what, more taxes and more spending? Jeebus, Matt. That’s about the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Pass that hopium bong this way, will ya? Jackass. ………… Jeb Bush “sounds Presidential” in NY. “Overhead from a top GOPer: “After this Obama nightmare, the Bush brand is looking pretty good.” ……………. Fire Helen Thomas!

The Truth is Out There UFO sightings in Oz, “It was a perfect spiral of light,” the witness said.

Finally, I ordered 2 of these yesterday. Not really sure why, I just wanted them, and the price was right.  Decent price on ammo, too.  Decent, but not cheap.  There just doesn’t seem to be  any cheap ammo out there any more.
