Blows Against The Empire

Matt Drudge is highlighting a link to the new blog by…Barack Obama’s teleprompter.

Meanwhile, Ed Morrissey notes the “youthful indescretions” of Vivek Kundra, the CIO of the Obama administration:

We’ve been wondering what happened with ‘America’s CIO’ Vivek Kundra’s 1997 misdemeanor theft conviction, the one the White House dismissed as “youthful indiscretion.”

Now we know: Vivek shopflited four shirts, worth $134 combined. From J.C. Penney.

At an average of $33.50 a pop, they weren’t even nice shirts, even in 1996 dollars. (The crime was 1996, the conviction 1997.)

And then, when Vivek got caught, he ran for it. He didn’t get away.

Probably a big Jane’s Addiction fan. But that sort of petty theft is small potatoes these days. Especially for an Obacabinet official.
