From Mickey, same post:
Does Obama really want to ruthlessly eliminate all major threats to his reelection?
Huntsman was approached by Obama for the appointment. Huntsman thought about it, then accepted the post. This is "ruthless" ... how? Did he hold Huntsman out of a window until he agreed or something? Seems like this whole process had a quite a lot of ruth.
I mean, I agree that "Obama ruthfully eliminates all major threats" doesn't have the same ring to it, but Mickey's holding this appointment out like its Michael Corleone moving against Moe Greene.
It all seems a bit ... I don't know ... excitable, doesn't it?
