OMG: Bush to appoint Chertoff to run Justice?

Think Progress » CNN: Bush Plans To Install Inexperienced, Bush Loyalist Clay Johnson At Homeland Security

Attorney General "Alberto" Gonzales' resignation prompts speculation about who will take over his post. Michael Chertoff is at the top of the list. Scary.

The silver lining is that DHS head Michael Chertoff is more qualified to run the DOJ than the DHS. The cloud is that he's not qualified to head up anything, except his head up Bush's backside.

Add another Bush loyalist to the steaming heap of shit we call the American government:
Asked about his relationship to Bush, Johnson told the New York Times recently that “there’s a lot of devotion to George Bush the person.” Johnson, who “is probably the only person to have spanked” the president’s dog, Barney, “keeps a George Bush doll on his desk.”
Clay Johnson attended both prep school (I think that is high-priced high school) and college with President Monkey. Can't ever trust a guy named named after sculpting material.
