Can you BELIEVE this?

It's blatant cronyism or is it bribery now, they don't even bother to hide it anymore:

In an uncharacteristic moment of cheerful bipartisanship, Bush is appointing a Democrat, Robert D. Lenhard, who was quite helpful to the 1600 Crew as part of the legal team that challenged the constitutionality of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.

The papers are leaving out this little tidbit tho':

He's the husband of Viveca Novak, whose testimony now provides the foundation for Karl Rove's defense in the CIA leak case.

There is perhaps another reason why Mr. Lenhard is being rewarded by BushCo. at just this moment, doncha think?
