    Default Zinke the queen

    There's a ritual at Buckingham palace that dictates a flag raising whenever the queen is in residence. When she enters the palace, a staff member raises the flag. When she leavers, the flag is lowered.

    Secretary of the Interior Zinke insists on the same protocol. When he gets to work, a staff member climbs the stairs to the roof and raises the official Dept of Int flag. When Zinke leaves, a staff member returns to the roof and lowers the flag.

    My god will this crap never end?

    Gives the employees fair warning at least. The flag represents the pillage and plunder ethos of the DOI, and indeed the whole administration.

    The self-importance is stunning.

    The best thing you can do is make fun of them. We have seen niether hide nor hair of Kushner since everyone laughed and pointed at his Jared of Arabia shtick.

    I think that has more to do with the investigators behind every bush.

    These people are more full of themselves than I thought possible. Pomposity raises to a new level.
