Bush Picks Kerik to Head Homeland Security

US President George W. Bush with Former
New York City Police Commissioner Bernard
Kerik (R), who has been chosen as the new
US homeland security secretary.

Isn't it ironic that Bush has chosen the Police Commissioner from New York City to head the Department of Homeland Security? In last month's election, New York City voters demonstrated their overwhelming faith in Bush's ability to keep them safe from harm by voting for John Kerry by a margin of 82% to 17%.
