Okay, so usually, when you're appointed to one of the most prestigious, influential, and enduring jobs in the world, you have some impressive credentials and years of experience. But Bush appoints his friend Harriet who has no experience as a judge, no scholarship to speak of in the field, and a resume that leaves a lot to be desired. I don't get it. Did he learn nothing from the FEMA snafu with dear old Brownie? Sigh. Again and again, it's not what you know (or how bright you are), but who you know. And that's no basis for running a country. Well, not a super-power anyway. It's more the realm of the backwater third world governments we laughed about in my youth. I'm not laughing now.
