Czar Kerlikowske

Former SPD police chief Gil Kerlikowske got confirmed by the Senate today, so he's now officially the head of the Office for National Drug Control Policy, or the Drug Czar. Kerlikowske passed by a vote of 91-1, the only nay being from Oklahoma's Tom Coburn, who deeply fears the gay agenda. (Coburn's office was not immediately available to comment on his vote.)

While drug policy reformers expect that he'll be better than his predecessors, the former SPD police chief who should really be drug czar is kicking it on Orcas Island, advocating against drug prohibition and writing a novel.
