Qualifications, shmalifications

I finally realized what the Bush appointment process reminds me of - Melrose Place.
In order to keep the cast members interacting in ever new combinations, characters were routinely shuffled between the same three or four workplaces. Someone might go from being a fashion designer to working in a bar, while wondering whether to go into advertising (guess which agency?!) or get a job in the hospital.
In that same proud Heather Locklear tradition, W seems intent on shuffling the 12 people he's met in his life in as many jobs around him as possible.
What a bizarre thing to be happening in the Whitehouse in the 21st century ...

I oike the 'W seems intent on shuffling the 12 people he's met in his life in as many jobs around him as possible'.

But who is that woman? she never was a court judge, or anything, was she? Is she just one of his 'policy wonks'?

Just a bit more on what appears to be Bush's choice of staff. You might like this article from spiked, a UK contrarian political site I like very much.

I loved your perspective so much I shared it with my blog readers. It's happened because a big chunk of the voters in the past two (at least) presidential elections don't know the difference between Melrose Place and reality.

Peace, Alan

"a big chunk of the voters don't know the difference between Melrose Place and reality."

So, you're saying there is one?
