John Negroponte Demoted
John Negroponte, having successfully reformed and overhauled the NSA, CIA, and FBI, is now leaving his position as Director of National Intelligence to be Condoleezza Rice's assistant. Why? Because no one else wanted the job.
He gets to be confirmed by the Senate all over again, which should be another fun opportunity to watch no one bring up Honduras.
Per usual, we're running this because we've always loved this picture of the most singularly evil-looking man in the Bush Administration. Cheney's got a bit too much Oliver Hardy in him.
