A good pick

It should probably come as no surprise that I was glad to see that General James Mattis was picked to take over US Central Command. Five and a half years ago I was glad to learn that he liked his job killing “guys who slap women around for five years.” Now he’s been picked to do a job that’s previously been done by guys like Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf, Tommy Franks and David Petraeus. Unless there’s been an excess of sensitivity training in the intervening years, this guy should have no trouble filling those shoes.
