Get a grip, Saber.Your idea is absurb and a fantasy.Nothing offensive at all in my suggestion.Being a columnist does not make you qualified to run a broad bureaucracy, get it?? No matter how much you agree with her writings.

She is too intelligent and independent to ever get a top post in the ultimate political cesspool of DC. I am sure Jorge is in mourning for the approval of his bro Vicente and will do the right PC thing! How about Horowitz to replace the incompetent, lost, and moronic Ziegler. Does Ziegler remind anyone else of the late consumate political butt boy Louie the arch moron Freh?

If you want to be serious, consider Guiliani, if he'll take the pay cut.

Will she bend to the wishes of La Raza, Chicano Nation and the People's Socialist State of California and allow the ilegals to get the amnesty that Bush has hinted they should get?

No way.

I posted an archive of her articles for the past three and a half years on the first page of this thread. Check out Malkin's writings on Illegals.

I don't think she'd necessarily do everything you ask in the way that you suggest (I wouldn't either), but if she got the post, Michelle Malkin would start turning things around on Illegal Aliens for the first time since Eisenhower.

I didn't know Zigler had decided to "retire". I wonder if he knew he was about to make that decision?

I don't know either, but this will be a telling nomination for Bush. It will reveal much if his next nominee is as soft on Illegals as Ziglar.

What do you think of Malkin?

I truly have no good suggestions on this one. But there are some that I don't think Bush would ever nominate (Buchanan for example.) This actually may work in Michelle's favor since there really isn't a 'leading' immigration voice, other than Tancredo- and he may be too much of a loose cannon to make it threw confirmation.

She is a complete unknown to me. I am much more interested in why Zigler is leaving. I have a feeling he does not want to head an agency half the size of the one he started out leading. I want to see who leads the Immigration enforcement department under the Homeland Security Agency. That will be more telling than whoever replaces Zigler as the head of the INS.

Buchanan would never be nominated, and will never pass the Senate. He's crossed the line with the Bush family, and is way too easy for the Dems to charicature.

I don't think Bush is all that fond of Tancredo, so I don't see him getting the nod. Someone else suggested Rick Santorum, but that's too dicey with the Senate up for grabs. We need those guys in Congress anyway.

Among her other assets, Malkin is the daughter of legal immigrants, and would be tough to bork as some angry, white male fringer.

What was Ziglar's experience?

I remember watching James Ziglar answering questions in front of the judiciary committee in the last 6 months and a demoRat was grilling him over the latest INS snafu and he asked Ziglar what was his experience to lead the INS and the nitwit said that he knew some immigrants. That was it, I nearly fell over in my chair. This was after 9-11 and this was the answer he gave. He is such an idiot and that is why the President appointed him to this job. Nobody inside the beltway wants the INS to function correctly. It is their little department of Racial division and they use it to pit American against each other and to flood our country with slave labor and illegal votes.

Michlle Malkin would be much more qualified then James Ziglar, at least we know she has a thinking, working brain.

This is an opportunity for him to shut his critics up.

That would be nice..we've got a Senate to win. Thanks to PhiKapMom, I'll be emailing Sensenbrenner on Monday.

She could accomplish wonders, just in us having her name up front and personal.

You may be right, but another nominee like Ziglar would be very illuminating, wouldn't it?

Many Bush defenders have blamed the lackluster performance of the INS on the current Chief.

Whomever Bush nominates, it will be indicative of the President's true sentiments regarding Illegal Aliens. This is an opportunity for him to shut his critics up.

It is likely that he will nominate someone pro-illegal immigration just to slap the face of 70% of the American public. Look for somebody out of the Chamber of Commerce, big business, the crowd that loves cheap labor; or, equally likely, someone "Hispanic", to pander to the "Hispanic" vote this fall.

Hoping that GWB or, in reality, Karl Rove will do the sensible political thing may be wishful thinking.

As I just posted, Buchanan. Now, Buchanan is never going to be considered, but neither is Malkin. Either would be a godsend compared to whoever is ultimately appointed (knowing my luck, it will probably be Michael Barone).

Say, does the head of the INS have to be an American citizen. I hear Jean-Marie Le Pen is looking for a new job. I think he would be perfect for this one.

I have that fear as well.

But for now, I'm going to try and be as constructive as I can in this golden opportunity for the President to get his policies straight on the matter of Illegal Aliens.

If he fails, if our fears are realized, many eyes will be opened.

It's been said that those critical of President Bush, as I have been, never offer solutions.

I'm suggesting one which I believe has merit. There is much that would be appealing about a Malkin nomination, to some rather disparate factions within the GOP.

Being reasonable, I'm willing to listen to other suggestions.

"Bush doesn't want to stop illegal immigration. I'm thinking he'll choose Spencer Abraham, or at least someone who share's Abraham's views on immigration."

This is Jorge Bush's last chance to win in 2004. Already, he's alienated way too many of the sole major demographic group to vote for him - non-Hispanic whites in Red Nation - to have any chance in 2004, given how narrow his win was in 2000, unless he does something serious to show us that we count more to him than the illegal-alien lobby. Otherwise, we'll abandon him at the polls in 2004.

I'd like to see her if for no other reason than she's MUCH easier to look at than James Ziglar

Seriously From the little I've read of her work I'd have to say sure why not.

Ah, the unfinished thought was along the lines of ...

"You think Condi Rice is a superstar?

Get a load of Michelle Malkin."

Appears to have lost it's zing in the translation, as you weren't the first one with whom it missed the mark.

Wasn't a jab at Condi, I think she's dynamite. I have for a while, a friend of mine was a professor at Stanford while she was there, and he always spoke highly of her.

I happen to to think that, like Condi, Michelle could trump a lot of the demagoguery often hurled at the GOP.

Ok. My thought is that Bush should avoid appointing anyone who is a firebrand on this issue. It requires the kind of sophistication and nuance that would enrage you probably. And of course, unless there are employer sanctions, which won't happen, rooting out and stopping illegals is a largely futile exercise except at the margin.

Me am enraged?

I don't mind if someone lower profile comes in and starts getting the job done. Nor do I want a militarization of the issue in any case. I agree on the need for enforcement of employer sanctions, as one of a number of means of addressing the matter.

Since you don't think that will happen, do I understand correctly that you feel Bush ought to appoint someone who will maintain the status quo, just going through the motions?

I have no fixed opinion. What I do know is that all of this has considerably less importance than you ascribe to it. I think assimilative influences are alive and well in America, and more potent in their solvency than ever. And the immigrants, legal and illegal, are in general, skewed towards the right side of the bell curve of the gene pool, as has always been the case.

Well, let's have a moratorium on saying "Jorge Bush," at least until we see the nomination.

I don't mind the term, though I don't choose to use it. But there are others on this forum who might be amenable to Malkin as INS Chief, or some of our other suggestions, who just shut down at the use of "Jorge."

We don't need to alienate them, we need to persuade some of them that the problem is real, so that we can get something done about it.

I'll second that nomination.

By the way, she lurks here on FR, under here husbands screen name.

If you buy her new book, you may recognize some of the numbers she quotes. They look remarkably like the ones on my profile page.

I'll Feepmail her and se what she thinks.
