Condi Rice's choice of Manuel Miranda to serve as Director of the Office of Legislative Statecraft at the U.S. Embassy in Iraq was absolutely inspired. Who better to teach Iraq's fledgling legislators the principles of democracy than the man, who while serving as a top Republican aid, hacked into the Senate Democratic Caucuses computers and stole over 4000 sensitive documents?
But I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Our Leader and his minions seem almost infallible when it comes to picking the perfect person for for any given job. The choices of Bernie Karik to serve as Interim Minister of Interior of Iraq and Hans von Spakovsky to run the FEC were just as insired as the Miranda pick.
I wonder what other great picks Our Leader and the gang have in store for us. It might be fun for us to do a few predictions. I'll list mine below and you can add to them in the comments.
Duke Cunningham to head the Pentagon's Office of Procurement.
James Inhofe as Chairmain of the President's Council on Science.
Michael "Heck of a Job" Brown to run FEMA (again)
David Vitter as Director of the Office of Abstinence Education.
Rush Limbaugh to run the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Scooter Libby to serve as the CIA's Deputy Director for Counterintelligence.
Patrick McHenry to chair the Presidents Council on Marriage.
