it’s not that he’s unqualified; turns out he was five pieces of flair short of the minimum

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has decided he doesn’t want a job at the Department of Homeland Security after all, despite his obvious delight at the prospect of somehow bringing to the federal government his extensive expertise in letting people die in jail and sending a posse to intimidate airline passengers who give him the stink-eye. And yet, for some reason, Clarke has now decided he can best serve the interests of Making America Great Again in some other capacity, like maybe fading from public view and not being a huge embarrassment. OK, probably not that one.

An “adviser” for Clarke — yeah, county sheriffs need advisers when they’re as impressive as David Clarke — Craig Peterson, offered this explanation of the decision:

Late Friday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. formally notified Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly that he had rescinded his acceptance of the agency’s offer to join DHS as an assistant secretary […] Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role.

Translation: There was no way that even this administration could hope to get this bozo into a federal job. As the Washington Post puts it, ever so diplomatically, a source “close to the administration” explained Clarke’s appointment faced “significant delays that contributed to his withdrawal.” Looks like DHS was in a diplomatic mood, too:

A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security said: “Sheriff Clarke is no longer being considered for a position within DHS. We wish him well.”

See? That was awfully kind — not even a “Don’t call us, we’ll call you” or “Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.” And even though Clarke’s not going to work for the feds, Donald Trump met with him last Tuesday so they could have a nice chat about other ways he could prove his loyalty to the Great Leader. Yes, of course Trump met with Clarke — David Clarke is on TV, after all:

“The sheriff is reviewing options inside and outside of government,” Peterson said. “Sheriff Clarke told Secretary Kelly he is very appreciative of the tremendous opportunity the secretary was offering, and expressed his support for the secretary and the agency.”

Maybe he’ll go on secret missions behind enemy lines with a ragtag band of vigilantes! Or perhaps he’ll get a full time job on Fox News so he can yell at Black Lives Matter and warn about their imminent merger with ISIS, like he did in 2015:

Probably the biggest surprise coming out of the Washington Post’s coverage of Clarke’s decision to “rescind” his acceptance of the job offer is that it turns out there really was a job offer; ever since Clarke said in May that he was looking forward to arresting all the terrorists who go to anti-Trump marches, we’d assumed that, as usual, he was full of shit. We were ready to say he’d decided to “turn down” the “job” because he was distraught over the death of his Canadian girlfriend — possibly after accidentally impaling herself on one of 307 pins on Clarke’s uniform. But as WaPo reporter Abby Phillip explains, there really was a “tentative job offer letter” from DHS to Clarke, and yes, a “Tentative Job Offer letter” is also a real thing for federal jobs that require a security check and stuff.

The position Clarke will not be filling was “Assistant Secretary for Office of Partnership and Engagement/State and Local Law Enforcement,” which sounds like it might have conflicted with Clarke’s deep moral opposition to creeping federal power. After all, back in 2015, he was very suspicious of federal involvement with local law enforcement agencies:

So yeah, he probably turned the job down out of moral indignation once he thought about all the possibilities for tyranny. That has to be it.

        “Der Dicke” was rather fond of dressing up. The Germans said he would don an admiral’s uniform to take a bath.

        • marxalot

          Was that before or after his doctor started loading him up on enough heroin, meth, and god only knows what else, to keep him vividly hallucinating and out of pain?

      • marxalot

        You know, if he’d died following WWI, or in combat, he’d be remembered as a flying ace, which is what he was. But he survived when his cause did not, and that is the tragedy of too many daredevils. It doesn’t absolve him of the crimes in which he participated or was complicit, but it became obvious once the Allies dried him out for Nuremburg that he didn’t have any clear memory of at least the previous five years. The docs had been drugging him to keep him a) out of pain; b) compliant; c) insane; d) all of the above.

    • shivaskeeper

      Part of that is traditionally Officers don’t earn many awards. The troops earn the awards and it’s considered bad form for an Officer to receive a decoration for the work of others. They tend to receive more service awards.

      But you also need to understand that is not a dress uniform. That one is a work uniform. There is no need to wear the chest salad to work everyday. He is displaying his seven personal decorations, but none of his service awards or foreign awards.

      • Predisenting Ron

        True. But if anything that makes Clarke look even MORE foolish, since Ike there was posing for this portrait in his undress khakis when he COULD have been wearing his dress uniform. This says, yes, I’m a general, but I’m also nothing special, just a soldier like all those who served under me.
        Interesting that his sleeve has been turned to show off his hash marks. He’s making it clear that he wasn’t some 90-day wonder.

        • shivaskeeper

          I agree completely. As for the hash marks showing, if it was anything like it is toady, the official portrait has very strict poses to show off things like that. Whoever took the picture arranged it like that. Also those are the overseas service bars. One bar for each six months overseas. He never got overseas during WWI. Which was a sticking point for some of his peers and subordinate officers during WWII.

          Now Ike’s full Mess Dress would be another thing altogether. He would put the NK Generals to shame if he wore all his foreign awards as well..

      • Gayer Than Thou

        I mean, are there not rules about what you can stick on your uniform?

        • shivaskeeper

          A lot of rules. For the military anyway. Army Regulation 670-1 covers it for the Army. The other services have their own. Most police forces should have something similar.

    OT: Speaking of fucking asshole police. At Columbus Pride last weekend, a group got approval for a 7 minute protest in response to the acquittal of the officer who killed Philando Castile. The Columbus PD got a “tip” that they were blocking the parade and like all good police, escalated the situation and arrested several protesters. None of the news reports are including the fact that they had prior approval from the organizers. The lovely CPD posted this on Facebook:

    Columbus Division of Police
    June 17 at 4:49pm ·
    ‪PRIDE ARRESTS:
    4 people arrested today. 4 officers were injured.
    1 suspect tried disarming an officer hurting her.
    1 suspect injured officer during his arrest‬.
    The suspects wouldn’t obey officers orders to leave the roadway at the parade this morning.
    Charges range from Aggravated Robbery, Resisting Arrest-Causing Harm to a Police Officer, Fail to Comply with a Police Officers Order or Signal to Disorderly Conduct-Hindering Movement.
    Overall everyone else had a great day.

    The bit of flair right under the star on his chest in the above picture is a badge from the Israel traffic police. Now, I’ve met a lot of LEOs-I used to work in a store that sells uniforms to most of the public safety departments in Central Texas. It’s quite common for LEOs, especially sheriffs, police chiefs and the like to collect insignia from other departments-but not to wear it on their own uniforms.

    • shivaskeeper

      There are probably regulations for badges earned form other agencies, not given as a gift, but actually earned. but as the Sheriff, I’m sure he ignores them. Besides, how cool does more flair and awards look?

      • Boojum

        Not at all, Katie?

        • shivaskeeper

          I have to agree – no true wingnut would be able to rant that long without at least one allusion to the sinister gay cabals of doom, lol

  • Bitter Scribe

    Hey, give Clarke a break about those 307 pins! Do you know how hard it was for him to eat all that Cracker Jack?

    • Anna Elizabeth

      xD His toilet knows.

    • SeeTrain65

      How many elderly veterans’ homes did he have to perform illegal searches on to steal confiscate all those medals?

      EDIT: It was this or a dumb one about “his TGI Friday’s job must be going well.” But I’m in a particularly pissy mood today.

  • Randy Riddle

    “…and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role.”

    The job would have scaled back his FoxNews appearances???

    • Three Finger Salute

      It would have conflicted with his plan to run over Black Lives Matter protesters in the street while simultaneously complaining to Tucker Carlson about black on black crime. Even he hasn’t unlocked the special Schrodinger’s Sheriff power… yet.

  • peteywheats

    Maybe somebody on Team Trump realized the last thing they need is another lying fascist POS with tons of smiley vacation photos in front of the Kremlin.

    • Three Finger Salute

      They only wanted him initially because he’s “their African-American.”

      • Rickyphoo

        Along with Bed Carson, they would have TWO! Then they could point at them and say, “See, we’re not a bunch of fucking racists.”

        Too bad, Clarke spoiled their plan by being too fucking crazy for even the trump administration.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    “Sheriff Clarke is no longer being considered for a position within DHS. Bless his heart. We wish him well.”

  • whitroth

    One more possibility: this Big Trump Supporter sees the writing on the wall, and doesn’t want to go down with him.

    • Heyzeus Ahchay

      How about “Big Trump Supporter sees the writing on the wall and doesn’t have a clue about what it says or means.”

      Makes more sense to me in terms of “Trump Supporters,” which I think can be purchased in the young boys’ underwear section.

  • Grokenstein

    Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role.

    Clarke doesn’t need an “aggressive role.” Ol’ Sherf Mad Dog brings all the aggro he’ll ever need to any role.

  • Relativicus

    Oh, so Clarke is against state and local police enforcing federal immigration law? I’d heard differently…

  • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

    Go ahead “sheriff”, stick another pin on yourself because you seem to be done.

  • Les Appentis De la résistance

    He finally realized he would have to move to Washington DC and there are too many black people there for his liking.

  • Zyxomma

    Must be.

  • I know a joke

    Maybe another one of his deputies crippled someone again, and he has to go frame the victim. Again.

  • alpacapunchbowl

    Sheriff Clarke: an angry black guy and participation trophy enthusiast that right wingers can get behind!

    • Heyzeus Ahchay

      How about: “Sheriff Clarke” an angry black guy that white right wingers can take advantage of (my apologies for the dangling preposition — but it’s bigger than Trump’s).

  • Incoming Ham

    Is there a class on Tweeting While Unstable? Meets a door down from the Meth ward?

    • phoenix00

      Ye Main Tenant at 1600 Pennsylvania holds said classes when he’s not golfing.

  • Sharon Cooper

    This might be the One Good Decision made by this administration, folks.

  • Ferdinand_The_Imposter

    No job was actually ever offered. The tentative offer was conditioned on passing drug testing, receiving ethics training, and establishing the lack of financial conflict of interest.

    • Tiny kaiju

      That would be a first for just about anyone in the Mango Shitgibbon’s administration.
