I agree with Bill Kristol: "How Do You Spell Scapegoat? H-A-G-E-L. So Chuck Hagel has been fired as defense secretary. We were critical of his appointment, and opposed his confirmation by the Senate. But let's be clear: Hagel has done what he was asked and what was expected of him at the Pentagon. To the degree he has deviated from the Obama White House line, he's been more right than wrong (e.g., on the threat the Islamic State poses)."
Too bad O-B-A-M-A and K-E-R-R-Y can't be fired.
Speaking of scapegoats, read Victor Davis Hanson's column Explaining Away Obama, especially the section titled Bush Everywhere.
