Scott-o-Rama, Still Partisanly Hackish

Scott-o-Rama just can't help himself. He can't let the truth get in the way of a good screed.
The Arizona Republic recently tried to figure out who McCain might pick for his cabinet if elected. Their predictions:
  • Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., in a prominent job, possibly even secretary of State;
  • Former Sen. Fred Thompson, R-Tenn., as attorney general;
  • Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as Homeland Security secretary;
  • Former Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas as Treasury secretary;
  • Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee as Health and Human Services secretary.
Notice anything about these choices? With the possible exception of Liberman being Jewish, not a single minority group is represented. I guess we can look forward to another four to eight years of the government being run by rich, white men should McCain be elected.
Several things are wrong with this post. First of all, Scott is using possible McCain appointments to disparage conservatives. Second, that's only five possible choices from dozens and dozens of administrative appointments to be made; one of which will never, ever happen "aaaach-uckabee-hoo". Pardon me. Third, it ignores the fact (that's F-A-C-T, FACT, Scott) that George W. Bush, a Republican, has had the most diverse cabinet in the history of the United States. Here's a little reading for you on Bush's appointments...
Diversity in the Cabinet: Will the Democrats equal Bush & Sarkozy?

Bush is opening doors with a diverse Cabinet
Scott rarely let's facts slow his rhetoric though, so forgive him.
