Assistant Quote of the Day

"I will ask John Bolton to be secretary of state."

-- Newt Gingrich

Not like you needed a reason to never in a million years vote for Gingrich, but in case you were looking for one that could be summed up in a single sentence -- there it is. If you don't even need a full sentence to convince you, there's always "War With Iran," which is the headline you'd be seeing in no time should John "Shit-House Rat Crazy" Bolton ever be put in charge of U.S. "diplomacy."

These guys really just don't have one new idea, do they?

However, according to PoliticalWire:

Unfortunately, naming individuals you would appoint to office before the election is apparently illegal. Here's Title 18, Part I, Chapter 29, Section 599 of the U.S. Code:

"Whoever, being a candidate, directly or indirectly promises or pledges the appointment, or the use of his influence or support for the appointment of any person to any public or private position or employment, for the purpose of procuring support in his candidacy shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the violation was willful, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."

Not that laws or ethics mean anything to little Newt.

And, it's illegal to announce who you'd nominate. Newt ne'er was much for rules though.
