So much is going on!

And I can’t think of anything to crack wise about!

Sure, McChrystal is in dire straits for mouthing off about the C-in-C to a pop magazine (he had to know that would land him in hot water, so maybe he did it on purpose), but unless the White House decides to fire him and replaces him with someone who will ease up on the rules of engagement, I doubt there will be much change in Afghanistan.  On the other hand, it smacks of “Do as I say, not as I do.

That’s not all, though!  A federal judge overturned the administration’s ban on deep water drilling (an appeal is sure to follow).  The president claims that he only allowed drilling to continue because he was assured it was 100% safe; nothing is 100% safe, whether it’s an engineering project in the middle of the gulf or just walking down the sidewalk.

And lest Arizona feel left out, the feds are suing them (presumably for making them look bad).  They’re in good company; Mexico also thinks the law should be struck down.  Of course, the rumors that immigration enforcement is lax because that’s the only way “comprehensive reform” (cough cough amnesty cough) will pass should be taken with a grain of salt.  After all, the president might think that, but surely he would never come right out and say it!  On the other hand, if there were only the two of them in the room, we’ll never know who said what.

All in all, it’s not shaping up to be a good week for the White House.
