This is starting to remind me of that one scene in Major League:

Charlie Donovan: Hello, Lou? This is Charlie Donovan of the Cleveland Indians. How would you like to manage the Indians this year?

Lou Brown: Uhhh, I don’t know.

Charlie: What do you mean you don’t know? This is a chance to manage in the big leagues.

Lou: Let me think it over, will you, Charlie? I got a guy on the other line about some whitewalls. I’ll talk to you later.

This is probably true, but when the National Security Council is more about slowly integrating institutionalized, legally enforced and embraced racism and eventually cracking down on the press, you probably don't want someone who is actually GOOD at tactics and strategy to be in charge of the purges.

Eh, Trump all but said he plans to do fuck all about Russia other than making nice, and there's really not much to do about NK. Nothing for NSC to do.

True. I mean more imminent or pressing threats with casualties, it's been a fairly quiet couple of weeks on that front. Which is definitely good, of course, haha, just saying!

Unqualified people are easier to catch when they do shady things. They have no idea how the system works and that slows down their transition to the tyrant government that the GOP wants to have.

There is no point in joining this administration. You'll eat shit all day, get nothing done because the entire place is a mess and you weren't allowed to replace the idiot staff with your own competent people, your boss is a moron sitting around watching TV waiting to hear his name mentioned, and finally you're there to be a fall guy for their corruption and incompetence anyway.

Vice Admiral Bob Harward has turned down President Donald Trump's offer to be national security adviser, sources told CNN Thursday.

A friend of Harward's said he was reluctant to take the job because the White House seems so chaotic.
