Well, it looks increasingly likely that GOP Sen. Judd Gregg will be named the new Commerce Secretary nominee following the Bill Richardson fiasco. (Update: Gregg accepts.)
Gregg championed the Crap Sandwich and regurgitated every Chicken Little talking point and fiscal myth to sell it:
Gregg then crusaded to release the second half of the Crap Sandwich despite the Treasury Department’s obstinate lack of disclosure and miserable bungling of its ever-evolving objective.
And he calls himself a “fiscal conservative?”
What we have here is a perfect fit.
I say again: God save us from bipartisanship.
Phillip Klein at the American Spectator wonders “What is Gregg thinking?” and shares some valuable notes from a conversation he had with Sen. Gregg last year:
One thing that was interesting was that as of last July, when I asked Gregg about his experiences working with Obama in the Senate, he said he saw very little of Obama:
He used to see him in the gym in the morning, and said Obama was in “great shape.” But he didn’t see him on the floor much, because Obama started running for president so soon into his freshman Senate term.
“I don’t know who he is or what he stands for better than anybody else,” Gregg said. “He’s a blank page.”
