"Attorney General John Ashcroft today appointed Kenneth R. Feinberg, a Democratic lawyer with extensive experience in mediating complex and emotionally charged disputes, to run the multibillion-dollar federal fund set up to compensate the families of those killed or physically injured in the September terrorist attacks." A Democrat to Run Fund for Sept. 11

Does this seem odd to anyone? Feinberg (left) is a democrat and a lawyer. If he was a union member, he would hit the trifecta of people Republicans loath. So why would Ashcroft (right) put him in charge? My guess is Ashcroft wants a few thousand widows to scream on TV about getting hosed and then he can say, "look, it was a Democrat who screwed you over on those payments."

I hope I'm wrong.
