Kerik Lets NYC Down

Homeland Security Secretary designee Bernard Kerik out in illicit nanny scandal. Civilized world exults, except for New York, which finally might have gotten its share of federal security dough from a department run by the ex-NYPD commish.

From the cop-turned-taser-pitchman's statement:

In the course of completing documents required for Senate confirmation, I uncovered information that now leads me to question the immigration status of a person who had been in my employ as a housekeeper and nanny. It has also been brought to my attention that for a period of time during such employment required tax payments and related filings had not been made.
So, the intrepid crimefighter didn't know she had illegally immigrated at the same time he wasn't withholding her taxes? On his way out the door, Kerik treats us like morons, as if to show the Bush administration how bold a liar they could have had.

This is all wrong. Buzz Kerik isn't a palooka who cares a whack about where his kid's butt-wiper slept in grade school. It's not his deal. He'll simply put the barrel to her brainpan, click the hammer, and ask a few questions. The smell will tell him whether she can bring the mail. And that's what we need. Because you know what this country doesn't need, Superfrankenstein? I'll tell you what this country doesn't need. It doesn't need some Avon-breathed cupcake sitting cross-legged at the top of the Terror Alert color code.

You can say THAT again.
