Zach on Bernard Kerik:

This is not “ironic” – and turning to sarcasm here obscures thr profoundly logical nature of this contradiction, for Kerik’s economic relationship with an undocumented domestic worker, and his withdrawal from the nomination for the secretariat of homeland security say something worth serious attention about the inexorable but unspeakable relationship between the security state’s complete reliance upon those it criminalizes.

Who would have thought, back in the era of Zoe Baird, that having an undocumented nanny would become an excuse to cover up more career-threatening embarrassments?
