Because he likes his jobs and is carrying water?

I think Mr. Gates will be an Eagle Scout until he dies, so describing him as “former” is just pretty stupid.  Not that I expect a whorenalist to know that, but they do have the internet available to them, or so I’m informed.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates, a former Eagle Scout, addressed the Boy Scout jamboree being held at Virginia’s Fort A.P. Hill.—and struck a decidedly cranky tone.

In his Wednesday speech, Gates said that young Americans are “increasingly physically unfit,” and cast doubts their character, too. Quoting Walter Lippman, Gates said he sees daily “the disaster of the character of men” and “the catastrophe of the soul.”

But, he was quick to add, not among Boy Scouts.

I personally would make it 8-5 that Obammy sent some of Michelle’s talking points about childhood obesity over and ordered him to work it into his speech to the 45000 kids least likely to need hearing it.

Did Obammy talk about fat people on The View?  Because that would be a great place to talk about being fat.

If I had an IPO, I’d put it off

If I was Zuckerberg, I’d steer so clear of the equity markets that no one would know I existed.  I can’t think of a single thing that a public offering would offer Zuckerberg that he can’t get now, except some kind of uber-stud macher status amongst the Privileged Few.

Facebook Inc. will probably put off its initial public offering until 2012, giving Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg more time to gain users and boost sales, three people familiar with the matter said.
