Nanny problem my, um, hind foot. 

After reading Sidney Blumenthal's scathing piece a couple of days ago about Kerik's resemblance to Caligula's horse (if you don't get the reference, go here), I knew it was only a matter of time before he'd have to step down. Just the things that Blumenthal recounts were enough to derail his nomination.

But, little did we know, it was going to get a lot better:
And just five years ago he was in financial trouble over a condominium he owned in New Jersey. More serious trouble than anyone realized: NEWSWEEK has discovered that a New Jersey judge in 1998 had issued an arrest warrant as part of a convoluted series of lawsuits relating to unpaid bills on his condo. The magazine faxed documents, including the arrest warrant, over to the White House around 6:00 p.m. Friday, asking for comment. Neither Kerik nor the White House had any immediate response. At 8:30 p.m., Kerik had submitted his letter to the president.
(via MSGOP)
If you read the story closely, this warrant was apparently never withdrawn!

Holy cow, BushCo just nominated a guy for a cabinet post for whom there was an active arrest warrant! And they wanted the guy to be the head of the agency concerned with national security!


That's gotta be a new low for an administration, even for this bottom-feeding administration, don't you think?

Boy the "nanny problem" excuse looks really lame now, doesn't it?
