And if it wasn't enough that the Bush administration appointed a 24-year-old lackey without a degree (and who lied about getting one from my alma mater), but he's a damn NASA legacy!
George C. Deutsch worked in the Materials and Structures division as Director and later became the Research and Technology Division Director from 1970 to 1978. Deutsch the first was awarded the Outstanding Leadership award from NASA.
I guess Deutsch No. 3 had too much to live up to.
I agree with Nick Anthis in that this has become patently offensive cronyism from the Bush Administration. First Brown, then Miers and now Deutsch? I can't wait to find out from Scanlon, Libby and Abramoff how tight the Bush administration's strangle-hold really is, and how deep the ties that bind are immersed.
