President Palin’s Cabinet

Should McCain/Palin get elected, and god forbid something were to happen to a President McCain, the following NY Times article might give you a peek into what a President Palin Cabinet would look like.  As you read the article, see if any other president of recent memory comes to mind.  Here’s a tidbit to whet your appetite:

So when there was a vacancy at the top of the State Division of Agriculture, she appointed a high school classmate, Franci Havemeister, to the $95,000-a-year directorship. A former real estate agent, Ms. Havemeister cited her childhood love of cows as a qualification for running the roughly $2 million agency. 

Ms. Havemeister was one of at least five schoolmates Ms. Palin hired, often at salaries far exceeding their private sector wages.  […]

And then there is this:

In Wasilla, a builder said he complained to Mayor Palin when the city attorney put a stop-work order on his housing project. She responded, he said, by engineering the attorney’s firing.

Interviews show that Ms. Palin runs an administration that puts a premium on loyalty and secrecy. The governor and her top officials sometimes use personal e-mail accounts for state business; dozens of e-mail messages obtained by The New York Times show that her staff members studied whether that could allow them to circumvent subpoenas seeking public records.

I actually believe Palin would be worse than Bush, and a few months ago, I didn’t think such a thing was possible.
