Heh. Brit Hume is not alone. That seems to be the consensus, after watching Hagel’s Secretary of Defense hearing.

So far GOP hasn’t been very effective against #Hagel. But his answers have been even worse. Bumbling & incoherent.

I don’t think Chuck Hagel hates Jews, I just think he’s a bumbling idiot that isn’t qualified for this job.

I don’t want any Israel hater as SoD, but a bigger problem is Hagel simply isn’t up to this job, period.

Policy disagreements aside, Hagel just isn’t coming across as somebody who would be a competent Secretary of Defense.

As I said from the beginning, the problem with Hagel isn’t Israel – it’s that he’s not very bright, and he’s a dick about it.

I haven’t said a single world about Hagel since this whole thing started, but my overriding impression today is that he’s not that bright.

And, to be fair, Hagel is not alone, either.
@brithume “Just not very bright” could describe almost anyone in the Obama administration.
