The Moose salutes the departing Secretary-designee of the Department of Homeland Security.
Only days after receiving the prestigious Joseph R. McCarthy Award for his bold statement that "political criticism is our enemies' best friend", Bernard Kerik is withdrawing his nomination. As a consolation prize, the Moose presents the former New York City Police Commissioner the Profiles in Hypocrisy Award for apparently violating the pristine ethical system that law-abiding, standards loving, moral relativism hating Republicans so revere.
In the Moose's absence, the award will hopefully be presented to Commissioner Kerik by previous Hypocrisy Award winner, Rush Limbaugh.
Congratulations from the Moose!
