Another TV show about feds: 'Justified'

By Ed O'Keefe

There's a new movie that features the Transportation Security Administration and now there's a new television show featuring U.S. Marshals.

The new FX drama, "Justified" debuted Tuesday evening with star Timothy Oliphant, who plays Raylan Givens, a "lean, lone, ornery hombre," according to The Post's Tom Shales (who penned a scathing critique of the show).

The show's writer, Graham Yost describes the series in the video clip above. (Warning: Some of the footage may be unsuitable for the workplace or young children.)

The new show joins a growing slate of TV dramas -- "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles" and "24" -- that depict government workers.

They should go over to Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Ks.
They can get some real drama about Federal workers over there. Like this:
Haskell Indian Nations University incident leaves student in coma.
We realize that crimes happen in colleges across the United States, but to have so many at such a small school ( current enrollment around 750- 800) happening this frequently not only fills us with apprehension about the crimes themselves, but also Veinda Chenault, (Haskell Indian Nations University’s current acting president) and her inability to NOT only handle the campus ( we've all seen the list-serve ) but her lack of sufficient ability to handle her own emotions, thoughts, lies and bullying when she becomes upset.

Or this:
How much did Haskell Indian Nations University spend on this trip?

Haskell can’t send their student senate president to Washington. Can’t feed their students decent food, will kick students out who can’t come up with $215.00 to pay fees, can’t get the two new BA programs going claiming under funding.
This week The Indian Affairs/Tribal Budget Advisory Council (TBAC) meets in Washington D.C. (not that the writers of this blog have anything against TBAC), we must ask who is going from Haskell Indian Nations in Lawrence, Kansas and why?

Apparently Venida Chenault (HaskellIndian Nations University's ACTING president), is going and taking with her George Tiger, Dan Wildcat, and Mike Lewis, yet, she couldn’t afford to send Janice Mendez, Haskell’s Student Senate President to The American Indian Higher Education Consortium in D.C. last month.
Larry Echohawk get here out of there and bring back Dr. Linda Sue Warner please!!!!

Or this:
Haskell News Commentary suggests to Dr. Linda Sue Warner that a law suit against the the FEDERATION OF INDIANSERVICE EMPLOYEES - AFT -AFL/CIO, Local 4524 should be forth coming.

Like The Catholic Church who had to deal with all those child molestation charges, eventually so will Ken Salazar and the Bureau of Indian Education/ Bureau of Indian Affairs have to answer for what has and is happening at Haskell Indian Nations University and at some point they will have to answer Kansas Senator Pat Robert’s, Sam Brownback, U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins and Congressman Dennis Moore’s questions.

I love it. 2 million federal employees and they all think they're NCIS material.

Tom Shales is a far left lunatic who would be in heaven working for terrorists. His opinion on anything is worthless, although it is a good reflction on the Washington Post.
