Another Attempt to Place a Crony in Office

Shrub nominated Ellen Sauerbrey to be the Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration. You probably haven't heard of this particular nut job. She was in charge of Shrub's Maryland presidential campaign in 2000. Since then she's made a fine name for herself as the US Ambassador to the Commission on the Status of Women. She tried to insert language in the Beijing +10 consensus document that said the original document guaranteed no new human rights and did not include the right to abortion. Not one single country stood with her attempt to demolish women's rights and she had to withdraw the ammendment.

Clearly, the Senate should reject her nomination.
