Apparently, the chances that the repeal of DADT will even be attempted during the lame-duck session are next to nil. "Disappointing" doesn't begin to do it—it's as pathetic and as total a failure as can be, considering the president has flatly stated he wanted it repealed, it's been voted on already and was filibustered by one vote, is (for now) attached to a defense-spending bill that can't not be passed eventually, was the subject of a request by the president that the Log Cabin Republicans round up "four or five" Republican senators to come on board and is an incredibly popular measure among the public.

Every critic who's been howling for a year that this would happen was absolutely right.

DC Kittens Comments (0)

Republicans are furious that Obama has too many czars—who have unchecked power and are not voted in by the Senate—and yet his 35 compares favorably to Bush's 36, so what's the problem? Predictably, some Democrats are also joining the fray because why not try to be fair with political opponents who are being transparently hypocritical in a whatever-it-takes effort to discredit a sitting president from your own party, right?

Rove_arrested One of the critics of Obama's multitude of czars is none other than Karl Rove...Bush's Domestic Policy Czar.

Maybe it's the Russkie name—CZAR—that turns people off. Perhaps Obama should take a cue from PETA and rebrand them as "DC kittens."

Regardless, if Republicans don't want Obama having so many czars, how about they fucking confirm some of his appointees in a timely manner?

The DNC's response is a clever mash-up of the odious Glenn Beck mocking Obama's czars juxtaposed with Bush's own czars. (By their count, Bush had 47, though I believe that counts multiple people who held a total of 36 positions.)
