First up: former CIA and National Security Agency director Michael Hayden for suggesting about Senator Diane Feinstein's intent to release her intelligence oversight committee's report on U.S. torture atrocities:
Feinstein seems to have thought about the moral as well as soft power demerits of making the U.S. an avowed torture state. But hey, don't go calling Feinstein a softie. She's been my mayor and my senator for most of my life, far too long in my view. She's no fainting female. (Nor are there many of those anywhere; we wouldn't survive the likes of Hayden if we were pushovers.) Feinstein is a politician more like an ice flow, a slow moving glacier that grinds and freezes anyone foolish enough not to get out of the way. Nice to see the NSA in her path.
Then there's ex-Gov. and potential GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee opining:
Paranoid and silly, a proper Mr. DickHead, is Mike.
If you are wondering where Mr. DickHead came from -- he was an item in an exhibit on the subject of "Sex in the Roman Era" I saw last summer in Tarragona, Spain. He appears designed to give a hand to women Romans. I figure with a likely Hillary Clinton candidacy on the horizon, there will be far too many opportunities to give out the Mr. DickHead Award in the next few years.
Nominees for the award gratefully accepted.
