Change?

I know it's lazy to just piggy-back on someone else's blog post, but I'm leaving for NYC in scant minutes, to re-unite with a host of old friends (including a certain "Libertarian Weirdo" [his words] regular readers may know).

Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air has a thing or two to say about the Obama Administration's belated coming-to-jebus moment when it comes to the importance of protecting secret information for the sake of protecting the country. Now, to be clear, I think they are coming to some smart conclusions which will keep us safer. The kind of "transparency" which the Obama campaign bleated so relentlessly about would lay bare some very sensitive information which could be utilized by our enemies for hurting us more effectively. It is a relief to see that, given access to the sort of classified information to which Presidents are privy, Obama is arriving at the same sensible conclusions for which his predecessor took so much heat.

As usual, it is the sheer hypocrisy of this Administration which irritates me mightily, along with the free pass which he still gets from the media (answer true, Liberal readers: is this the first you've heard of this?).

Naw, man, you've got him all wrong! He meant "change" as in "spare change," and "hope" as in "I hope that guy has some spare change, I'm really fucking hungry." :)

See you tonight, bro!
