Mandate revisited


So all it takes to get a Federal appointment these days is a guy crush, huh?

I used to think W., with his narrow religiosity and disregard of rights, was like Charles I. But The New York Times > Washington > maybe he's more like James I:

"Throughout the process, the Republican close to the administration said, everyone at the White House knew that Mr. Bush liked Mr. Kerik, placing him in the special category of 'this guy's our guy.' Mr. Bush admired Mr. Kerik for his service as New York City's police commissioner on Sept. 11, 2001, for his willingness to try to train the police force in Iraq and for campaigning tirelessly for the president's re-election."
