Porcupine's Quill

News Item:  Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn resigns as National Security Advisor after only 24
days -- the shortest on record.

You're hired; you're fired.  You're hired; you're fired.  I am getting tired of this

Well, Mr. President, you are quick to hire.

And you folks are supposed to vett my choices.

Not after you hired him sir ...

I suppose you will vett my latest choice ... before I offer him the job ...

Given that you have chosen a bull mastiff and given that he's already vetted by a
veterinarian, there is little for us to do, sir.

I tell you he makes me feel safer, and there are enough spooky spooks already.  I'm
scared to open my mouth.

That's exactly how they want you sir ...

Don't worry, I can still tweet.

By the way, I'm sending the dog's sister to Vlad as a present.

He'll love her sir ... great choice, if I may say so, sir.

I am sorry about Flynn.  All I told him to do was tell them not to worry.  He talked too

Well, he was a bit of a loose cannon in his previous job when the Obama
administration fired him.  He also shifted 180-degrees on Turkey after his consulting
firm got a big contract there last summer.

Oh, I like flexible people.  Well, we must go on ... darned press is like a terrier nipping
at your ankles.  That's another reason I've got Shalom here (pets the bull mastiff).  
He'll bring peace ...
