Wow! Shades of NCIS. One or more active shooters are in the Washington Navy Yard. Two PD officers down according to the last update, with a total of four killed.
With all the mass confusion going on, it’s obvious Leroy Jethro Gibbs is not in charge.
Weekend recap. I and a number of friends, attended the MidWest Republican Leadership Conference held in Kansas City this last weekend. Most of the folks were pols or wanna-bees who wanted to rub elbows and be seen with other pols and wanna-bees.
I went to take advantage of some of the training sessions that were presented—training for Precinct Captains, Organizing County Committees, and Data Collection and Usage. Unaffiliated groups won’t have access to the last. The data is accessible only to party functionaries. That isn’t unexpected.
However, I have requested copies of some of the training manuals and the presentations. Never know when that can be useful.
Well, well, will wonders never cease. Larry Summers, who made millions with Bush’s TARP bailout has decided the water is too hot being the Fed Chairman. He has declined the nomination.
Report: Larry Summers withdraws from consideration for Fed chairman

Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers has pulled his name out of the running to be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve, according to a report on Sunday.
In the face of stiff opposition from President Obama’s own base, Summers withdrew from consideration for the top post, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Summers, Obama’s former chief economic adviser and Treasury Secretary under President Bill Clinton, was seen by many as the frontrunner for the job. Obama has gone out of his way to defend Summers, a rare move ahead of making an official nomination.
I noticed the article didn’t mention Summer benefited from TARP.
