Julie Myers: the new Michael D. Brown?

In this recent column by Michelle Malkin, we find out that illegal immigration is still being neglected, and now, it appears that Michael D. Brown, the former head of FEMA, whose previous experience in jobs didn't extend much beyond working in an old age home, could be having his act followed up upon in the form of Julie Myers, whom Dubya may be appointing as head of the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement):
The rudderless and overwhelmed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency still does not have a new chief. Which is just as well since Bush nominee Julie Myers (a nice Bush lawyer with virtually no immigration or customs enforcement experience who happens to be the niece of recently retired chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers/wife of Chertoff's chief of staff/former employee of Chertoff and former colleague of outgoing ICE head Michael Garcia) would provide as much leadership and morale-boosting ability as a pair of junior high pom-poms. Her nomination is still pending.

Meanwhile, as illegal immigration continues unabated, the White House has seen fit to honor the chief of the Border Patrol, David Aguilar, with a presidential "Meritorious Executive" award, which comes with a cash bonus, for his outstanding performance. I kid you not.
Even if she hasn't been approved yet for the job, that Bush would choose someone who clearly doesn't have any more experience than the former FEMA chief when it comes to the job in question is both bewildering and downright appalling. And the award given to Aguilar is also ludicrous.

Debbie Schlussel has also written about the possible Myers appointment recently, and pointed out how, most interestingly enough, Myers chose herself for such jobs! Indeed, why is the president appointing people of Myers' standing if they're going to act as if they're literally qualified for this or that position?

This cannot go on, and it's very fortunate for now that both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate have so far put her nomination on hold. But if it's to be made sure that she isn't nominated in the end, that's why serious a discussion of this topic is needed.

Others on the subject include Lone Wacko, A Knight's Blog.
