I am not proud of what I am about to write and before you continue reading there is something you should know: I am fairly certain that events today mark the beginning of Armageddon...keep an eye out for locusts.

This morning...crikey, this is difficult...I applauded Democrats and jeered Republicans.

I`m sorry! Well, not really.

Despite my express instructions, the nomination of Julie Myers to head ICE passed the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs by a 7-2 party-line vote.

Fortunately, the nomination now heads to the Senate floor, where it should face some pretty tough opposition.
