Bush Poised to Play Musical Incompetents With DHS, Justice Dept.

Just when you think you’re far past being horrified over anything the Bush Administration might do, a story like this comes along.

According to Think Progress, CNN reported that Bush plans to nominate Michael Chertoff, the ghoulish and incompetent fear monger who currently runs the Department of Homeland Security, as the new Attorney General.

Clay Johnson III, currently the Deputy Director of Management at OMB, will take over at Homeland Security. Johnson’s qualifications: unthinking loyalty, up to and including keeping a George Bush doll on his desk.

The nightmare continues. People need to stop tossing around the term “lame duck” when referring to Bush. The term imports a sense of impotence that just doesn’t square with reality. In truth, there’s no limit to the damage these fuckers can do over the next year and a half.

    Is it just me, or does Michael Chertoff look like Skeletor?

    I’m willing to bet there’s no way he makes it past the speculation stage as a possible nominee, because Bush doesn’t want two difficult nomination fights, which is what he’d get with Chertoff for AG and Johnson for Homeland Security.

    I can see it now…here’s Bush and Chertoff at the press conference announcing Chertoff’s nomination as AG:

    I dunno, Zach. I’d like to believe this administration would exercise a modicum of restraint to avoid two simultaneous and ugly confirmation battles, not to mention place competent people in these key positions, but all signs indicate that they’re still operating under the laughable delusion that they have tons of “political capital” to spend.

    And no, it ain’t just you on the Skeletor deal.
