Kerik Out

Good riddance. Its sad, as Steve Gilliard alludes to in his blog, that some stuff about an illegal immigrant working for him as a nanny (aka -- from the Clinton Days . . . I mean Golden Years -- "a Nanny Problem") distracted from the fact that Kerik is grossly underqualified to be Secretary of Homeland Security. I mean really, he is a joke. We need a Secretary who won't bullshit us on red alerts and orange alerts, someone who will level with the American people and do his or her best to make sure America's ports, borders and cities are safer than ever. Oh, shit ... we needed a new president. But we blew that. Now we're stuck with Bush, and -- undoubtedly -- more idiot nominees like Kerik.
