I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Bu$h Uses Blatant Cronyism For Appointments

Bu$h made series of recess appointments Wednesday evening including a slew of cronies and hacks the president couldn't manage to get through a senate controlled by his own party!

Here's the list posted at the White House. Some of the nominees that Bu$h bypassed the Senate to install is former Navy Secretary Gordon R. England as deputy secretary of defense and Julie L. Myers as assistant secretary of homeland security for immigration and customs enforcement. 17 appointments in all.

Many members of his own party have voiced their concerns over the complete lack of qualifications for some of these appointees. (Can you say Brown?!) As far as I can tell the only real qualifications that Bu$h demands for any position within our government is blind unquestioning loyalty to him and a hefty donation to the cause.
