Since I never got around to changing my vote after winning the last round does this mean I win again?

President Donald Trump's homeland security adviser, Tom Bossert, has resigned, the White House said Tuesday, making him the latest in a long line of senior officials to leave the administration.

On Monday night, Bossert was socializing with current and former U.S. Intelligence officials at a conference at the Cloisters resort in Sea Island, Georgia. A source close to him told NBC News that the adviser was not aware there was any intention at the White House to seek his resignation, and had no plans to quite (sic).

"New team," the source said, without further explanation.

I see the making of a song here.

And another one under the bus.
Another one under the bus.
Another one under the bus.
And another one hired, and another one fired
Another one under the bus, yeah
Hey, Trump's gonna fire him too
Then another one under the bus

(with apologies to John Deacon)

I woke up this morning, glanced at the headlines, and moaned ”Oh, it’s Jimmy again.”

Mr520 looked around, puzzled.

Oh, hell, I'm changing my vote from Kelly to Jimmy. With Bolton in, there's going to be lots more Jimmys. Plus, if Himself is mad enough about Cohen, he'll fire Sessions & then even more Jimmys. This is a national emergency where we really need the ability to make longer polls. :lol: Or, barring that, we should take the ones not likely to leave off (Miller, Kellyanne, & Sarah). They can join the rest of the Jimmys.

Collateral damage
John Bolton pushes out Tom Bossert as homeland security adviser
By Jeremy Diamond, Kaitlan Collins and Jeff Zeleny, CNN

Updated 1548 GMT (2348 HKT) April 10, 2018

Washington (CNN)White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert was pushed out of his position by the newly installed national security adviser John Bolton, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN on Tuesday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed his departure in a statement, saying President Donald Trump "is grateful for Tom's commitment to the safety and security of our great country.

"Tom led the White House's efforts to protect the homeland from terrorist threats, strengthen our cyber defenses, and respond to an unprecedented series of natural disasters," Sanders said. "President Trump thanks him for his patriotic service and wishes him well."

Bolton will have the WhiteyHouse populated by toxic walruses.

They fall so fast its turning into a sucker bet...

I think we need to change the rules a bit and make it more like playing craps in a casino, Jimmy down the hall will be the pass line and the cabinet and other named advisers are the points.

So you have to say yes/no on Jimmy, and then pick the next named victim to win...

Right now it says there are 62 votes which get all wiped out if'n I reset the poll again. And 24 of the votes - which is like more than half, maybe - are for Jimmy Dunderhall, who has won twice in a row, but dig it: you can always change your vote. Hell, I don't care if you post that you're picking Jimmy because you think Pruitt is next, and then claim victory when Bossert gets the axe instead.

Of course, everyone who wins gets a wholly imaginary Fake Million Dollars, just go down the hall, past Jimmy's office, and through the imaginary double doors on the left (or maybe on the right, I forgets), then through the door marked "EXIT" and three blocks south to the imaginary cashier in the nonexistent basement of the pizza restaurant.

Sessions, Rosenstein, Mueller, and a couple Jimmys down the hall...just because he's on a roll.

I’m sticking with Sessions for now. I think that Trump holds him ultimately responsible for all the legal stuff going on.

Nope. :nope: :nope: :nope:

Jimmy pays small dividends over time, but there's always risk. And the prestige from calling a big name is a lot higher.

I think it was in his rant on the Cohen raid that he once again mentioned how pissed off he was cause Sessions recused himself.
