I’m not linking but Kaplan has a big Sally Quinn piece calling for the head of Desiree Rogers. It’s pretty fucking comical:
Obama has had some real successes this fall. He did a masterful job of bringing together incredibly disparate positions to craft a strategy for Afghanistan. He put himself on the line and will probably come up with a reasonable health-care plan. He left Copenhagen with at least promises of cooperation from other world powers regarding climate change. But he is not getting credit that he deserves because he is being ill served by those around him who will not step up as needed and take the fall for him.
The president needs to start making that happen. The first step would be to accept the resignations of Sullivan and Rogers today.
That’s right, folks — global warming, health care reform, and a couple of nuts crashing a state party dinner are all equally important issues.
I can’t do this justice, but Digby and Bob Somerby probably can.
