Doughy Pantload with a Screwdriver

The big read this weekend was Rajiv Chandrasekaran's expose in the Washington Post on what we liberals already knew --- the CPA hired its minions based not on skill or merit but based on fealty to Bush. Its political patronage in the supreme and should be illegal (though given the recent opinion of conservative activist judge T.S. Ellis in the Custer Battles case, there probably isn't even a civil claim that can be made).

What is new are some of the details --- the hiring was controlled by Jim O'Beirne (husband of the National Review's rightwing sycophant Kate O'Beirne. Apparently some applicants were even asked their view on Roe v. Wade.

Its another case of rightwing affirmative action. A way to dump loads of money into the pockets of its young adherents. Merit be damned. Even more, Iraqis be damned.

  • THEY WILL ALL GET THEIR FILL WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR, WHEN IRAQ HAS COMPLETELY FALLEN INTO CIVIL WAR, WHICH IS PREDICTED TO SPREAD QUICKLY TO DICTATORSHIPS LIKE JORDAN AND THEN TO SAUDIA ARABIA. THE US MILITARY WILL BE TOO WEAKENED AND DEMORALIZED TO DO ANYTHING. BUSH WILL BE INVOLVED IN CONTINUOUS INVESTIGATIONS.
