Despite criticism from all around, including from Republicans, President Bush continues to stand by Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff a/k/a “Mr. Burns”.
White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan says Chertoff’s “doing a great job”. Sound familiar?
Yup, the President’s support is as deserved as “Brownie, You’re Doing a Heck of a Job” was. With illegal immigration increasing, not being stemmed or even slowed, and with everything under his DHS purview basically a mess, we’re tired of the excuses.
It looks to us that the only thing Mr. Burns is hard at work on these days is changing his facial hair almost as often as Madonna changes underwear. We hear he does not like the “Mr. Burns” appellation we’ve bestowed upon him and is doing everything in his power to change his “separated at birth” look that matches the “Simpsons” character.
It is working because he now has this Clark Gable-esque mustache that belongs –along with his antiquated approach to illegal aliens–back in the ’40s. We think we will have to do a “Studies in Chertoff Facial Hair” retrospective collage.
