Another job, another Bush crony
From CNN

No, it's not Harriet Miers, who for various reasons might be tolerable to some people. Julie Myers was approved by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to head Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, in the face of severe criticism from Democrats. Republicans had joined in until our dear friend Michael Chertoff sweet-talked them. This chick has next to no experience with immigration or customs, barely (if that) meets the statute-mandated minimum experience for the position, has never managed anything approaching 20,000 people, and to boot is the wife of Michael Chertoff's chief of staff and the daughter of former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers. In other words, Bush is putting a crony in charge of an agency critical to our REAL national security. Protecting our borders and keeping terrorists out of this country is a hell of a lot more important in this "War on Terror" than some stupid crap going down in Iraq, but neither Bush nor our Republican Senate pals seem interested in making the distinction.

Benson, you can do better than "this chick"; Myers's second X chromosome is irrelevant to her lack of qualifications.

What do you mean by "stupid crap?" That sounds pretty callous to the non-stupid crap going down in Iraq, like, you know, children and civilians and soldiers dying every day. Keep your anger focused, man.

Richard, if she were a guy she'd get called an "assclown". Trust me when I say she's getting off easy :-)

Shelby, Iraq is stupid WRT the "war on terror", but obviously the people there are suffering greatly. Maybe it was just a clever attempt to get people to comment in your blog...
