This has been a week in which we have witnessed the best and the worst in the U.S. Congress. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman John Mica advised that the General Services Administration should “duck and cover,” after fallout over the GSA’s “mismanagement” of taxpayers’ monies. Lavish parties. Who knows what else? Meanwhile, the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security got hoodwinked in the form of ” former” U.S. Marine John Halinski of the TSA. Halinski obviously thinks a lot of himself, coming off as if he were a five-star general who took Iwo Jima all by himself. Halinski is no General Mattis (a real Marine Corps general). Halinski, we believe, will have a short tenure at TSA, much to the pleasure of Democrats who set him up to take the fall in the first place. We feel certain that Gen. Mattis got a good laugh out of this.
