As Twitchy has reported, President Obama is expected to nominate Sen. Hagel for Secretary of Defense. The announcement is due this afternoon. It is now being reported that he will also nominate John Brennan to head the CIA.

Heh. No, the other one: The chief counterterrorism adviser Brennan.

Twitter users react immediately, and bring up some points before the media does, as usual.

And, zing:

Twitchy will continue to monitor this news and will update with further developments.

Update: David Axelrod swoons.

Gee, we wonder why?
