Jersey Blogging, National blogging, I got it all rolled up into one, today.
President Bush has nominated Marine General Peter Pace (He's originally from NJ, according to the bio) to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Not sure how I feel about it yet, all I remember is him on TV when the war was still "on", talking about how awfully Saddam's troops were behaving. That sounded true enough to me.
I can't say that I know much more about him yet than the bio that I've linked to. At least, though, as he is currently Vice Chairman, this nomination doesn't seem completely out of left field to me.
