Karl Zinsmeister Named Domestic Policy Adviser

Conservative journalist Karl Zinsmeister has been named White House Domestic Policy Advisor.

In the latest White House personnel changes, the editor of a conservative magazine will replace Claude Allen, the domestic policy adviser who left in February amid a shoplifting investigation. The White House announced the appointment Wednesday of Karl Zinsmeister, who has been editor-in-chief of The American Enterprise magazine for 12 years. “Karl has broad policy experience and a keen insight into many of the issues that face America’s families and entrepreneurs, including race, poverty, welfare, and education,” President Bush said in a statement. “He is an innovative thinker and an accomplished executive. He will lead my domestic policy team with energy and a fresh perspective.” (AP)

I think Bush is just trying to irritate Kevin Drum.

    Gee guys, did Allen have 90 grand in his freezer? Did he have his cock in an interns mouth?

    Christopher just because Clinton has done things with women that you have only dreamed about… Oh well I guess I can see why you are bitter.

    Did Clinton start a war over phantom WMD, kill 2400 plus American service men & women and countless innocent Iraqis and waste hundreds of billions of dollars in the process?
