Bernie Bails

Kerik Withdraws His Name for Top DHS Job

WASHINGTON - In a surprise move, former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik abruptly withdrew his nomination as President Bush (news - web sites)'s choice to be homeland security secretary Friday night, saying questions have arisen about the immigration status of a housekeeper and nanny he employed...
I'm smelling a big fat load of industrial strength bullshit here. Read the whole story. Illegal housekeeper and nanny my ass...that would disqualify fully half of elected and non-elected officials in Washington.

Stay tuned. I have an itchy bitchy feeling that the National Enquirer will pick up on this one where the MSP leaves off. And we already know how Agent K feels about the tabloids...

So. Who's next? (If nominated, I will not run, if selected, I will not serve.)

Update, 12/12/04, 10AM: Well, well. It looks like the "bullshit detector" was right. Seems as if old Bernie has an arrest warrant out for him ... among other little sorrid adventures, as chronicled by Steve Gilliard.
