two more reminders that george w. bush is no longer president

I occasionally have to remind myself that the de facto Bush Administration is over. Two items help bring that fact home.

First, President Obama has nominated Craig Fugate to be the head of FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency of "heck of a job Brownie" Katrina screw-up fame. And Fugate is actually qualified. He has headed Florida's Division of Emergency Management since 2001, and has done a good job in running the agency and responding to hurricanes. Fugate was first appointed by Jeb Bush, the competent Bush brother. And he is a choice that I can't imagine George W. having made. Hope he's up to date on his taxes.

And second, Karl Rove and Harriet Miers will testify about the Great US Attorney Massacre and their roles. Admittedly, it will be before the House Judiciary Committe, with no cameras or media present. But they WILL be subject to perjury if (?) they lie, and transcripts will be made and eventually published.

Not entirely perfect, but the perjury element is important.
