Back in spite of popular demand
This may be the last Random Shots before the world ends in a few days. You know what I am talking about-the sequestration. Once that happens, America will look like this:

Not that President Obama is worried. He's been on another one of those golf vacations-this time in Florida with noted economic expert Tiger Woods-while Michelle was off to Aspen for skiing.
Now I'm not implying anything, you know (other than separate vacations means separate Air Force jets). Woods may have a reputation as a playboy, but surely if there was anything improper going on, our news media would catch it.
Except they were not allowed anywhere near Woods and the prez. I guess Tiger doesn't like cameras going off in the middle of his swing. But I just know they would have reported something had they seen it, right?
Meanwhile, Obama is running around the fruited plain appearing before groups of people as backdrops who would be affected by the sequestration including cops, nurses, doctors, lawyers and Indian chiefs.
Meanwhile, the President's cabinet is filling up slowly. The Defense nominee, Chuck Hagel, was so bad during his confirmation hearings, yet not one Democrat turned against him. The Republicans put up a token resistance, but now the flies are dropping (McCain, Graham and Shelby). And why not? Hagel hates Israel, hates the so-called Jewish Lobby in the US and thinks the US should disarm unilaterally. He's perfect! Outside of Sgt Bilko and Beetle Bailey, I can't think of a better choice.
Meanwhile, John Brennan (who some are saying converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia) will head up our CIA. He thinks the Muslim Brotherhood is some sort of Arab Salvation Army. He clearly doesn't understand the Arab world even though it was his specialty in the CIA and he speaks fluent Arabic. And never mind all those rumors about him directing clandestine attacks against certain groups in Libya that may have caused the attack on our consulate as retribution. What difference at this point does it make? (hat tip Hillary Clinton)
Julius and Ethel Rosenberg would have been a better choice.
Of course, John Heinz Kerry has already been confirmed and is winging his way around the world in what will certainly be one failure after another.
Wait till our allies meet this windbag. Even the French will be appalled. Hopefully, he won't take his wife, Teresa ("Isn't she terrific?") Heinz Kerry with him. She can destroy diplomatic relations in 5 languages.
"Va funculo, Fousesquawk."
But let's get to the main event. Is there a bigger crook in the history of the US Congress than Jesse Jackson Jr? He and his wife (former Chicago Alderman Sandra Jackson) have just pleaded guilty to bilking the public for some $750,000 dollars over 7 years using his campaign credit card to buy furs, vacations, a Rolex watch worth over $40,000, and all kinds of stuff. This was so brazen even Eric Holder's Justice Department couldn't ignore this one. Apparently, under the plea deal, he will only serve 4-5 years and his wife 1-2 years.
So now we know what was plaguing Jackson all these months he was out of public view and at the Mayo Clinic being treated for "exhaustion" and "bi-polar disorder". He knew the law was closing in on him and he was on his way to the slammer. I would be bi-polar too.
On a final note, we hear that our "professionals" in the TSA did the complete search on a 3-year-old girl in a stroller at some airport thinking that the stroller might be concealing a bomb. I can only hope that they subject Janet Napolitano to the full monty the next time she gets on a plane-you know, strip search, bend over and spread em, Janet.
I would like to continue, but the end of the world is getting nearer-and so is Eric Holder's Justice Department.
