Locke Is New Winner Of Latino Consolation Prize!
Sure, Gary Locke isn't even half-Mexican, but today he officially won the plum job firstpromised to the known Latino Bill Richardson, and then to known Republican Judd Gregg. He will be our new Commerce Secretary, which means that he gets to outsource the administration of the Census Bureau to ACORN, while handing over control of the National Weather Service and indeed the weather itself to Bill Ayers. Locke will oversee our shabby trade imbalance, and will put millions of Americans to work farming small pebbles for us to sell overseas. [Bloomberg]
