There’s big news today since the New York Times published a letter from Jake Desantis, an executive vice president in AIG’s Financial Products Division. The article is titled, Dear AIG, I Quit. It is the resignation letter that Desantis sent to Edward Liddy. Wizbang describes the letter as ‘grace under fire’ and a ‘devastating critique of the mob mentality that consumed Congress last week.’
Gawker has a completely different point of view. He calls Jake Desantis part of the ‘overclass’ and self-righteous. Someone who has no understanding of what the average person deals with in the working world.

blatherings is writing about the Obama zombies. They are officially known as ‘Obama 2.0′ or ‘Organizing for America’, but they bear a striking resemblance to something that might be called the Brown Shirt Obama Youth.

The Admonition lets us know that the Global War on Terror is officially over. So says Obama, so it shall be done. You know how he likes to rename things and give pretty names to ugly things so we’ll all think they aren’t quite as bad as we would think they were if we didn’t call them something nice. Now the Global War on Terrorism is to be called ‘Overseas Contingency Operation’. What is an ‘Overseas Contingency Operation’? Is that just a prettier name for ‘war’?

The Gateway Pundit is reporting the the Jews and Zionist are using cellular services to spy on the Taliban. At least that’s what the Taliban think.
