Same ol', same ol'
It should come as no big surprise to anyone that the administration continues to nominate know-nothing cronies:
Democratic senators Tuesday questioned whether President Bush's nominee to lead the State Department refugee program is qualified for the job.
Bush has nominated Ellen Sauerbrey, who twice lost bids for Maryland governor, to be assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration. If confirmed, she would manage a nearly $1 billion budget for refugee crises overseas.
"I don't think we see the requisite experience that we've seen in other nominees" for the job, said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California, at Sauerbrey's confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
