At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

New Green Jobs Czar

I've felt somewhat adrift since famous Black Panther, communist and Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, resigned at midnight on a Sunday evening. How will America ever generate green jobs without a czar to manage it properly. Yes, I know that Dear Leader appointed another one but he has no charisma, none of that Che Guevera radical panache.

So here on Can We Keep Our Republic (and how can we possible keep the Republic without a green jobs czar?) I am putting a name forward to you that you can all agree on. Ed Begley, jr.

Some of you will remember Ed from his many appearances in the movies and television. I remember his appearances in the feature films: A Mighty Wind (where he played a guy who had a garage band in Stockholm) and Best of Show (where he played a hotel manager). He also played himself on the television cartoon, "The Simpsons" (1 episode). He has a lot of bit-part credits on movies and television, which suggests to me that he has a good agent. Congratulations on landing that agent, Ed.

Anyway, he's used his television fame to promote global warming and because of his senseless rants supporting unsupportable theory, I thought he'd make a perfect green jobs czar.

Yes, I know that czars aren't exactly what the founding fathers envisioned when they wrote the Constitution, but then again, they might not have considered the current global warming hoax would be taken seriously  (outside The Simpsons television cartoon).

I thought of Al Gore for the job. He'd be perfect but he's polishing the same Nobel Peace Prize that Barack Hussein Obama is -- that and he's giving speeches on how he created the Internet. That keeps Al busy.

So what about it? Who's for Ed Begley jr. as the next czar in the ObamaNation?

I am all for doing away with "czars" of both parties.

Why not...he's as mindless as the rest of the idiots in D.C. But he should spend more time taking acting lessons.

I am thinking that Obama is the Manchurian candidate for our enemies.

Did you see good 'ol Ed ranting about pollution in defense of Global Warming, as if they are one in the same?:

He'd still be better than Commie Van Jones. I think it's interesting that Obama put a Communist in as the "Green" czar, to begin with. It seems to me to reveal the real intent of the green movement.

Opus~ I'm with you - 100%

TKZ~ Isn't it impressive just how shameless they are at not even TRYING to cover up their intentions? And still, there are those who can't see the nose on the front of their face...

I saw that clip of Mad Ed posted at Goomba, and I could hardly stand to watch it. Ed was practically foaming at the mouth, screaming at Stuart Varney.

Yeah, he'd be perfect. I second the nominatin.

I remember Rush Limbaugh saying back in the early 90's that the environmentalism was the new home for the collapsed communists, and damned if he wasn't right.

At least he probably pays his taxes, unlike most of the people Obama seems to favor.
