I really like Robert Gates

I’ve liked him ever since he stepped into Defense after Rumsfeld. It was so reassuring to see an adult without a personal agenda and very little ego showing. He was in the Bush administration, but not of it. And now, as the Senate Armed Services Committee takes testimony from him and the Joint Chiefs chair and others, I like him even more.

And I like Admiral Mullen. It’s nice for a change to hear people in our government talking with conviction about ‘doing the right thing’. Don’t hear┬áthat often these days.

Oh. And John McCain needs to go home and check out the early bird specials. He should also probably be there to chase kids off his lawn.
