red face black face thanks, pale facesd

It’s a great day for the...racists... I think we can say—well, shit, Beth just came through running the vacuum and announced that the box springs are all torn up under the bed...I’m not surprised: we’ve never figured out how to really keep the cats from ripping around down there. She shouldn’t be, either...But it’s something that’s momentarily important, I guess...sort of like whatever I was going to say about the following news story—

Immigration Director Hosts Party With Guest In Blackface

This woman is just too much.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Department of Homeland Security will investigate a Halloween costume party hosted by a top immigration official and attended by a man dressed in a striped prison outfit, dreadlocks and darkened skin make-up, a costume some say is offensive, the department's secretary said.

Julie Myers, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and host of the fundraising party, was on a three-judge panel that originally praised the prisoner costume for "originality."

"Some say" is offensive? What the hell is unoffensive about a man in blackface, dreadlocks and a prison uniform?

Any sane manager of anything would know this is unacceptable.... oh, wait- seems this Julie Myers is another of Bush's crony appointments who has NO qualifications for the job, at all.

Concerns over Myers, 36, were acute enough at a Senate hearing last week that lawmakers asked the nominee to detail during her testimony her postings and to account for her management experience. Sen. George V. Voinovich (R-Ohio) went so far as to tell Myers that her résumé indicates she is not qualified for the job.


Her uncle is Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers, the departing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. She married Chertoff's current chief of staff, John F. Wood, on Saturday.

That is what serves as qualifications in Bush's government.
