We try to keep this a fairly SFW blog or I'd tell you exactly what I think of those sniveling, cowardly, imbecilic, bitter old men. Via.

Sen. Roy Blunt signaled Wednesday that there may be enough votes in the Senate to delay debate on the nomination of Chuck Hagel to lead the Pentagon.

Blunt (R-Mo.) said he believed there were 40 votes in the Senate that indicated “it’s too quick to end the debate on this nomination.”

The GOP, which controls 45 votes in the Senate, would need 41 votes to block former Sen. Hagel from hitting the 60-vote threshold that some Republicans have threatened.

Well, she looks crunchy granola so that's a good thing.

(CNN) - Sally Jewell, the CEO of outdoor gear company REI, will be nominated by President Barack Obama to succeed Ken Salazar as secretary of the interior, a senior administration official tells CNN.

Salazar announced in mid-January that he was stepping down from his post. He did not intend to serve another term in Obama's Cabinet, he said.

The senior administration official said Jewell is "uniquely qualified" for the new post because of her management in the private sector and understanding of energy and conservation issues.
