Reality sets in for Republicans after last night's contempt-of-Congress vote on AG Holder; who gets to do the proscecuting? The Justice Department, headed by a guy named Holder. They'll work like good BBQ, low and slow rather than fast and furious.
The interesting question is whether a Romney-era Justice department can bring charges on the former boss if we get to that point. Is there a statute of limitations on a contempt charge so that if Obama does win, a future administration might bring it up in 2017 or later?
On a lighter note, the draft was interesting. Kentucky tied its own record by having six players drafted, including the top two for the first time ever. Detroit's pick of Andre Drummond was a good one, an 18-year-old shot-blocker who looks like a poor-man's Anthony Davis, or a taller Ben Wallace. If Big Ben can be persuaded to stick around, either as a player or assistant coach, he could even help his free-throw shooting, which was at 29% at UConn last year. That can't be said of too many players.
Little Ben, Ben Gordon, got shipped off to Charlotte for Cory Maggette; the Bobcats get a future #1 as well for eating Gordon's bloated (at least a on bang-for-buck basis) contract. Maggette might work well as a off-the-bench swingman, getting starter minutes in a four-man 123 rotation with Knight, Stuckey and Prince.
US envoy to Kenya Scott Gration has announced his resignation, citing "differences in leadership style and priorities" with Washington.
That is what we call diplomatic. There is a far bigger story there, if Gration or one of his aids is willing to talk. Since Keyna borders Somalia, it is a key location geopolitically, and a former Air Force general might have wanted something different from what his bosses wanted.
"Zimmerman Seeks New Bond." I'm not a big fan of Daniel Craig, either. Hugh Jackman would be a nice change.
