  1. Beemer continues to hire and promote the usual suspects and looks like a weak player, but given the fact he replaced Kane he will end up looking good after all her insane actions. I’ve never seen anyone as incompetent as Kane and wonder how any so called editorial board could not see through her in 2012.
