Thanks for playing Defense Secretary, Chuck. Now here’s a nice parting gift.
In Kirby's office, staff express shock at Fox News quoting an official: "This is why you don't send a sergeant to do a secretary's job."

That should go over well.
Fox News quotes an Administration official on Hagel "don't send a Sergeant to do a Secretary's job" That's appalling https://t.co/kGXRwW7R92

Appalling? Look who we’re talking about here.

This is who they are.
What’s wrong with these people? Was the Gruber fiasco not enough? Hagel was ill-suited for the job for lots of reasons, but the fact that he was an enlisted man who served in combat wasn’t one of them. Indeed, it was one of his great assets, which is why Obama touted it so much during his confirmation period. Moreover, it’s not like he was appointed straight from the army rank-and-file. He was a senator after all. Why on earth would these people denigrate enlisted men just to heap scorn on Hagel? The ticky-tacky snobbishness of these people knows no bounds.
