HRH Preznit CooCooBananas did his recess appointments today, bypassing that nasty inconvenient Congress and placing - mirable dictu again - a whole load of cronies and incompetents into Federal positions. Woo-hoo!
Some of the more interesting:
Julie L. Myers, of Kansas, to be Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security (Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement) , who was labeled by Michelle Malkin herself as unqualified, who, in fact, doesn't have the necessary qualifications, and who helped write the money-laundering sections of the PATRIOT Act
Tracy A. Henke, of Missouri, to be Executive Director of the Office of State and Local Government Coordination and Preparedness at the Department of Homeland Security, a John Ashcroft political appointee at the Justice Department, who, while at the Justice Dept., hid statistics on racial profiling
Dorrance Smith, of Virginia, to be Assistant Secretary of Defense (Public Affairs), whose previous employment involved being a PR flack for the Iraq CPA and for FEMA
Ellen R. Sauerbrey, of Maryland, to be Assistant Secretary of State (Population, Refugees, and Migration), yet another "small-government" Republican who has been an anti-abortion advocate during her time at the U.N. and who, coincidentally, ran Bush's 2000 campaign in Maryland and who has, according to the NY Times (behind the TimesSelect Curtain)"...no experience responding to major crises calling for international relief."
Robert D. Lenhard, of Maryland, to be a Member of the Federal Election Commission, who was part of a legal challenge to McCain-Feingold and just happens to be the husband of Viveca Novak, of "Plame leak" fame
but the winner has to be:
Hans Von Spakovsky, of Georgia, to be a Member of the Federal Election Commission, a member of the Federalist Society, who was not only involved with the Florida voter roll purges but went to Florida during the 2000 "recount" on behalf of the Bush campaign
Good times, folks, good times! Now, if you'll pardon me, I'm going to go back to bed and hide under the covers.
