Post-Katrina thinking

Niece of a big-time administration aparachik and apologist? Check!
Married to the Secretary's Chief of Staff? Check!
Worked for Ken Starr? Check!
Same name as a minor character on "Desperate Housewives?" Check!
Relevant qualifications and experience to head the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency? None!

So of course Julie Myers, niece of General Richard Myers, wife of Jerkoff's Chief of Staff, and former attorney on the staff of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr, has been appointed by the Bushies for the job.

It's all so ridiculous. But these paragraphs demonstrate just how on-the-ball the Democrats have been about all this:
I. Michael Greenberger, a former Clinton administration official who heads the Center for Health and Homeland Security at the University of Maryland, said the Myers appointment represents "pre-Katrina thinking, where political relationships were a very large factor."

"Post-Katrina, we now see that people need to be eminently qualified," Greenberger said.
Good lord, man! You didn't see that before?
