Putting Country First!

From the annals of Republicans who put love of the USA! USA! USA! before anything else: Director of National Intelligence, Bush appointee Mike McConnell, has abruptly quit. His replacement, Dennis Blair, has not yet been confirmed by the Senate.

Blair's confirmation is expected to be smooth, and there is an acting director for the interim, but still. McConnell couldn't do his job until his successor was confirmed?

What's that charming little phrase the wingnuts used to love so much? Cutting and running?
