More on the heavy-handed and empty-headed management style of Aldona Wos:
A tense meeting with DHHS Secretary Dr. Aldona Wos and other top staff over how to implement budget cuts helped usher King to her exit.
King released copies of her supervisor’s letters about her firing, along with her response. King said in an interview that she also believes her lack of cooperation in ferreting out hygienists who took vacation time to lobby legislators against cuts in oral health contributed to her getting fired.
“I went back to the office and thought ‘that did not go well.’ I did not realize how badly it had gone.”
In an email to colleagues, King said Wos repeatedly interrupted her during their meeting. “I have never been treated with such disrespect in any work setting,” King said in the email.
“Even if I had deserved it, which I did not, no employee should be treated that way.”
This is a classic example of piss-poor executive leadership. The "my way or the highway" approach serves to stifle constructive criticism and feedback, and it can be found in the archived meeting minutes of nearly every business that has failed and gone into bankruptcy proceedings. But when you're Aldona Wos, that really doesn't matter, because you've already got more money than you know what to do with.

Even the Tea Party, which has shown a marked inability to see through the corporate haze of astro-turfing, recognizes Richard Burr for what he is: nothing more than a tool for lobbyists. If we can only keep them from being distracted by waving flags or darkies driving BMWs, they might just be his undoing.
Speaking of Senatorial tools:

Yeah, right. This TV ad isn't about protecting VoterID, it's about flogging the hate-filled stealth white supremacists into supporting your ill-advised campaign for U.S. Senate. But please go ahead and spend your money on stuff like this. I find it amusing.

And that's just one of many reasons your opinion isn't worth the digital space it's taking up on the web. To postulate that the President's conundrum of trying to deal with a humanitarian crisis that has claimed over 100,000 lives so far is merely a "distraction" to take attention away from a (right-wing manufactured) controversy is quite possibly the most insane thing you've ever posted, and that's saying a hell of a lot.
The #ncpol hashtag has become the new grocery store checkout lane, eclipsing the National Enquirer and others in the silly category.
Speaking of brainless activity:

That's...okay, it's not like somebody just blurted it out without thinking, like making a joke about fat people without, you know, looking over your shoulder to make sure one hasn't snuck up on you unawares. Somebody took the time to carefully place the letters and numbers on this thing, and they had to have thought at some time during this process, "Ssss...yeah, I'm not so sure this is a good idea..." At least I hope they did.
It's almost a relief to get back to the usual twits:

Now I know which hashtag to follow to find the news stories that really piss off the RWNJ Twits. Which saves me time that I can use to come up with more clever ways to expose their ignorance. Life is good.

Just to get a (nasty) taste in your mouth of what Berger has done with this appointment, read one of Card's "fictional" essays about Obama:
Having been anointed from the start of his career because he was that magical combination -- a black man who talks like a white man (that's what they mean by calling him "articulate" and a "great speaker") -- he has never had to work for a living, and he has never had to struggle to accomplish goals. He despises ordinary people, is hostile to any religion that doesn't have Obama as its deity, and his contempt for the military is complete.
You'd think that such a man could not possibly remain in office past the Constitutional limit of two terms -- but I think the plan is already in place...
Michelle Obama will be Obama's designated "successor," and any Democrat who seriously opposes her will be destroyed in the media the way everyone who contested Obama's run for the Democratic nomination in 2008 was destroyed.
But the plan goes deeper than this. Barack Obama, like Hitler and the Iranian dictators, announced his plan, though the media (as with Hitler) has "forgotten" it...
Obama called for a "national police force" in 2008, though he never gave a clue about why such a thing would be necessary. We have the National Guard. We have the armed forces. The FBI. The Secret Service. And all the local and state police forces.
The trouble is that all of these groups have long independent histories and none of them is reliably under Barack Obama's personal control. He needs Brown Shirts -- thugs who will do his bidding without any reference to law.
Obama will claim we need a national police force in order to fight terrorism and crime. The Boston bombing is a useful start, especially when combined with random shootings by crazy people...
Instead of doing drive-by shootings in their own neighborhoods, these young thugs will do beatings and murders of people "trying to escape" -- people who all seem to be leaders and members of groups that oppose Obama.
Already the thugs who serve the far left agenda of Obama's team do systematic character assassination as a means of intimidating their opponents into silence. But physical beatings and "legal" disappearances will be even more effective -- as Hitler and Putin and many other dictators have demonstrated over and over.
But the media will cover all the actions of the NaPo as if it were merely a full-employment program for unemployed urban youth. Or if they finally wise up (maybe after a few reporters disappear), they'll be cowed into submission very quickly...
Card is a racist, sexist, homophobic piece of the smelliest kind of shit, and Phil Berger's choice of him as a public television board member proves that neither one of them is qualified for their respective positions.
The best way to get that disgusting taste out of your mouth is to bite an Onion:
