Is That Shelby or Smell Me?
Reactionary Rethug Sen. Richard "Smell Me" Shelby (Confederate-AL) has been doing his small part to help the Rethugs gum up the gears of government, and then blame Democrats when things don't work. One of the wrenches Smell Me has thrown into the gears is his hold on the nomination of Peter Diamond to be a member of the Federal Reserve Board. Smell Me's objection? Why, Diamond lacks the qualifications! That would be the same Peter Diamond who just won the Nobel Prize for Economics.
