1. KnR. And *that's* why that question irks me, coming from anyone

It is so disingenuous, so hypocritical, so Catch-22 and damned if you do damned if you don't, that it just about makes me gag.

4. Regarding President Obama's second term cabinet


Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary Janet Napolitano are still in Obama's cabinet and they are not going anywhere.
Secretary of Commerce, Rebecca Blank, is female - and has not resigned as far as I know.
Attorney General Eric Holder is African-American - and will be staying on for the second term.
Secretary Shinseki and Secretary Chu are Asian.
There is probably another one I missed to include above.
President Obama's cabinet in his second term WILL BE diverse just like his first term.
Also, there are a few more cabinet slots that have not yet been announced, so there will most likely be more female appointments.



p.s. The OP toon is a good one
