Bush Appointments Avert Senate Battles

WaPo reports President Bush yesterday made a raft of controversial recess appointments, including Julie L. Myers to head the Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureau at the Department of Homeland Security, in a maneuver circumventing the need for approval by the Senate.

Good for him. The Senate has plenty of important work to do, including passing the Patriot Act, consenting to the Alito nomination, etc and these people need to get to work now.
