11. The nomination and confirmation of a Republican as Secretary of Defense in a Democratic

administration imo has virtually guaranteed business as usual at the Pentagon and the MIC. Had someone like General Wesley Clark been nominated and confirmed as Secretary of Defense, a move to reign in the Pentagon's-MIC's reins might have been attempted, but such nomination was clearly never in the cards cause: we gotta have someone strong on national defense and tough on communism and terra that only a Republican can be has been the mantra, the big lie drilled into our heads, i.e., no libral-assed, bleeding-heart socialist-leaning Democratic wussie could ever be strong enough on national defense and tough enough on communism and terra for that is something only any chicken-hawk chicken-shit neocon would be.
