Peter Pace Presents a Peck of Pressing Problems…..

From Think Progress:

Gen. Peter Pace is the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff not to be renominated for a second term since the military was centralized under the joint chiefs position 21 years ago.

Today, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced that the reason he made this unusual decision was because the administration wants to avoid a “contentious” nomination hearing with hard questions about the war in Iraq

But was that the real reason, or is it better to slightly skew the facts about General Pace?
Original DVD cover.

Think Progress has a list of reasons why General Pace not being renominated: the war not going well, his remarks about homosexuality being immoral, and his not knowing the number of casualties in the war, among others. Allow me to add one more–his letter of support of Irving ‘Scooter’ Libby.
Awwwww, I like it better when they rely on the old Rethug standby. Why couldn’t he leave to spend more time with his family like all the rest of Chimpy’s gang of rejects?

  1. Friend of the court

    The administration wants to avoid “hard questions”, about the war in Iraq. Waay to support the troops, George. Although, to be fair, I’m sure that Bush would rather avoid most questions of any kind.

    i think pace turned out to be an embarrassment. they loved him while he spooned with rummy, and chimpy probably smooched him right on the lips when he stated his opinion on homosexuality, but the chickens come home to roost, and he turned out to be poison once the dems took over congress. those pesky investigations!

  3. Not only his he the shortest live JCS but he was the first marine. So I just he will go down in the books for several first and worst.

    Do you think Pace is a “a sophisticated hipster”, like Gunn?

    I wonder what nameless waterfront city Pace will move to.

    i hope it’s a place that starts with P. peter pace of pittsburgh. pennsylvania. peter pace of pensacola. peter pace of pamploma. wherever he is exiled to, i hope they let him take his pickled peppers with him. as for being a hipster, they keep showing him at some kind of dinner with chimpy where he puts his napkin over his head while chimpy pours him some coffee. that is considered humor to those at a 2nd grade level. they probably didn’t show the footage of them shooting boogers at each other.

  5. LOL

    I found the new home for Peter Pace, Piper City, Illinois.

    I guess napkins are hip in chimpville
