We're in the best of hands

Reports are coming forth that all the Secret Service nonsense that has come to light of late may not be entirely the fault of the still-inept Julia Pierson.

Reporter Carol Leonnig paints a picture of an out-of-touch administrator with very little real-world experience as an agent in a post-9/11 world who regularly succumbed to hectoring requests from White House staffers to tone down the security footprint of the Secret Service for appearances sake:

"In her 18 months in charge, Pierson also became the subject of derision among some lower-level agents for accommodating the White House staff’s wishes for less-cumbersome security over the warnings of her tactical teams." (Source)

But hey, the appearance was good, right -- a woman in charge of the unit?

Par for the course for this bunch of pathetic lemons: All style, zippo substance.
