It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! If you knew it was the day Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter visit David Waldman for KITM, you’d be half-right. Greg couldn’t make it, as he is attending some fascinating procedural meetings having to do with his “job”, but he still rounded-up some punditry for us all.
Apparently today is also Take Your Assault Rifle to Church Day, a religious holiday important enough to close local schools. God bless the guns, but the bullets can go to hell, because everyone knows they’re dangerous.
If Ben Carson was looking to have his budget blown, he came to the wrong woman. Still, she was demoted, unaware that “$5,000 will not even buy a decent chair”. Ben has specific tastes, and that might limit his approved vendors. Next time Ben should check with the boss, he knows a place to shop.
