Congratulations, Loretta Lynch! You have been confirmed as Attorney General, and it only took 166 days, which, as a student of History, you may be interested to know, is much longer than the entire lifespan of quite a few independent nations. Only two other Attorneys General took longer to confirm (Edwin Meese, under Ronald Reagan, and A. Mitchell Palmer, under Woodrow Wilson).


Thank goodness, though, the Senate finally passed that human trafficking bill that had absolutely nothing to do with your nomination, and so apparently it was OK for Mitch McConnell to let you out of the cellar. And now, we should probably expect the Senate to just start passing laws and confirming appointees right and left, unless of course Barack Obama goes and does something divisive, like appointing someone to another post that requires confirmation.

And you even got some votes from Republicans, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who probably voted for you because he felt right bad that the Democrats forced him to hold your confirmation back so long, but you know how unreasonable they can be, what with objecting to abortion provisions being thrown into a bill that absolutely had to be finished before you could take your job.

So enjoy your brand new office, once you convince Eric Holder that, yes, you really were confirmed, you actually are standing there, and he's not just having that one dream again.

Oh, also, you've been called to testify before the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee tomorrow. What did you REALLY know about Benghazi? When will you stop covering up?

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
