Obama's "Deliberate Haste" [LINK]

A short note to NPR:

In a story reporting how the Homeland Security department will weather the presidential transition, you quote President-Elect Obama as saying that he will act with "deliberate haste" in filling key positions. "Deliberate haste" is a contradiction in terms, akin to saying he will act with "tall shortness." Rather than simply repeat meaningless statements, please clarify them.
