The Swagger Continues

I see SecState Pompeo is persisting with the swagger thing, and is now using a "Department of Swagger" seal on his new Instagram account.

His second post dropped a couple famous names:
Shakespeare was the first to use "swagger." Gen. Patton had his swagger stick. At @statedept, we've got some #swagger too. It's our confidence in America's values.

Okay, if that's how he wants to brand himself and the Department, far be it from me to object. But can Pompeo swagger like Jagger? I think not.

TSB: How about "Swaggering Rick?" The United States welcomes competition from Russia on the global energy markets, but Russia can no longer use energy as an economic weapon, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said on Thursday during his meeting with Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak in Moscow.
At the meeting, “Secretary Perry also expressed his disappointment and concern about Russia’s continued attempts to infiltrate the American electric grid,” a statement from the U.S. Department of Energy on the meeting says.

Who do these Russkies think they are trying to build a pipeline to our friends and allies?? And they better not shut down our electrical grid either or he will really be mad!!gwb

"Rooster on LSD" brings to mind more than just Mick these days.

I remember when Rick Perry pulled a .380 pistol from his jogging shorts and killed a coyote that was attacking his dog, which makes me want to give him the benefit of the doubt.
