This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

That's a MAN, baby!
As my sister Karla will likely say when she stops by this post, "Aaaaargh! It burns. It BURRRRRRRRNS!!!!!"
These are the only two pictures I could find of Debra Cagan on the internets. She is currently Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Coalition and Multinational Operations, but she has had plenty of gummint jobs, including working for the supreme allied commander of NATO and on staff at the embassy in Russia under Clinton. She's in the news this week because a British paper reported that she said "I hate all Iranians" in a meeting with British MPs. A weak denial of "That doesn't sound like Debra" has been produced, but three of the six folks at the meeting have confirmed that in fact, it sounds exactly like Debra.
Making fun of the clothes and haircuts of people in Washington is usually Princess Sparkle Pony's job, but the Princess has decided that "Debra Cagan is hideous" is comment enough, so it's open season for the rest of us. The strange pendant in the picture on the right is a medal from a ceremony in Hungary. All the other fashion choices are hers and hers alone.
Even as a progressive, I tire of the jokes about Ann Coulter's adam's apple and possible surgical alterations. But looking at Ms. Cagan, the post-op, pre-op, no-op and co-op transsexual jokes are just lying there, like eggs on the White House lawn on Easter. Go, you crazy kids! Go find as many jokes as you can!
