Walpin issues funny quote

Fox News:
In the letter, White House Special Counsel Norman Eisen wrote that Walpin was “confused” and “disoriented” at a May board meeting, was “unduly disruptive,” and exhibited a “lack of candor” in providing information to decision makers.

“That’s a total lie,” Walpin said of the latter charge. And he said the accusation that he was dazed and confused at one meeting out of many was not only false, but poor rationale for his ouster.

“It appears to suggest that I was removed because I was disabled — based on one occasion out of hundreds,” he said.

“I would never say President Obama doesn’t have the capacity to continue to serve because of his (statement) that there are 56 states,” Walpin said, adding that the same holds for Vice President Biden and his “many express confusions that have been highlighted by the media.”
This Walpin firing is a clear scandal which is committed with ruthless assurance that media will parrot the White House line and will fail to publicize the scandalous aspects. It's self-assured and ruthless power politics. As Kill Bill's Texas Ranger Earl McGraw said:
"If you was a moron you could almost admire it."

Of course, I'm speaking of a moron admiring self-assuredness and ruthlessness. Texas Ranger Earl McGraw was speaking of excellence:
"Well, a sure and steady hand did this. This ain't no squirrelly amateur. This is the work of a salty dog. You can tell by the cleanliness of the carnage. Now a kill-crazy rampage though it may be, all the colors are kept inside the lines. If you was a moron you could almost admire it."
The White House has not displayed excellence. A sure and steady hand is not in evidence; Walpin's firing was not the work of a salty dog; there is not cleanliness in the carnage; colors were not kept inside the lines. The only thing in evidence is chutzpah.

Senator Grassley is on it like a dog on a bone. Could things get kinda sorta interesting?
