And what a choice too

And what a well-qualified Republican Candace Miller is -- she should fit in just fine:

During the 108th Congress, Miller was admonished by the House Ethics Committee for improperly attempting to influence the vote of fellow Michigan Congressman Nick Smith on a Medicare vote. "The subcommittee released a 62-page report... that admonished Rep. Candice Miller (R-Mich.) and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) for possibly breaking House rules by offering support for Smith's son in exchange for a vote and threatening retaliation if Smith did not vote for the Medicare bill.

The report... admonished Rep. Candice S. Miller (R-Mich.) for making comments about Brad Smith during the Nov. 22 roll call that appeared to be "a threat of retaliation" for Nick Smith's vote against the bill.

  Miller, R-Mt. Clemens, is one of a group of lawmakers participating in a ``war room'' that will provide information from the Bush administration to other Republican members, the news media and constituents. Miller and the others are on ``a short list to call'' to go on radio, talk shows and talk with reporters, said Melissa Mazzella, Miller's press secretary.

Loves starting illegal wars and bullying over ethics.

Yep, she'll fit in nicely.

Somehow, it's almost poetic that Boner picks one of the most ethically-challenged (and simple-minded) women in Congress to run the House Administration Committee.

It's almost as if he were thinking, "want a token woman? I'll give you a token woman, oh, boy, will I ever!"
