Why yes, I am enjoying the president-elect’s appointments. I can only imagine how much fun his actual administration is going to be!
Barack Obama’s selection of Eric Holder as his attorney general is a very discouraging sign for anyone who hoped the new administration would de-escalate the war on drugs. As Dave Weigel noted earlier today, Holder pushed for stiffer marijuana penalties when he was the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia
Holder is seriously hard core on drugs. He believes it’s important to eradicate “marijuana violence”. And he’s right. Because when someone’s pizza delivery is sleazed by a baked dude with the munchies, government has to act!
Attn: Gov. Palin. The 2012 youth vote is now in play.
UPDATE – The anti-war Left were the next to feel the sharp kiss of Obama’s treacherous blade:
Antiwar groups and other liberal activists are increasingly concerned at signs that Barack Obama’s national security team will be dominated by appointees who favored the Iraq invasion and hold hawkish views on other important foreign policy issues.
