The President of the United States, the less than honorable George W. Bush, has some interesting traits, among them a certain blindness regarding proven ability when making political appointments and a fierce loyalty to these "Bushies" when they prove themselves to be less than up to the job. Then, you know someone must have been very bad for Bush to actually fire one of them, as he has done with Lurita Doan, head of the General Services Administration (GSA) which executes so many, many purchasing contracts. I don't have the reportorial style so I invite you to watch TPM's Paul Kiel recite the facts, as best as Doan can dis-remember them.
Just think how much these pandering political prostitutes must despise us if they think that our votes can be bought by delivering a few greasy pork rinds to our districts and saying "look what I have done for you." Unfortunately, they may be right.
