"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse." --John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)

A Lowdown Dirty Shame

Bernie Kerik has withdrawn as the president's nominee to head the Department of Homeland Pickup Trucks. He has the infamous "nanny problem" that was so prevalent with President Clinton's nominees.

Isn't it strange that if there's a problem with the immigration status of your babysitter, you are deemed unfit to serve as a member of the president's cabinet, and yet if you commit perjury in a lawsuit accusing you of sexual harrassment, you are deemed fit to serve as president?
