Bush Dissolves Congress

It would certainly appear that way, reading the news release about King George's recess appointments. As kos notes:

Who needs the pesky Senate for "advice and consent" when a recess appointment will work just as well?

Recess appointing Assistant Secretaries of Defense and DEPUTY Secretaries of Defense? General Counsel of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence? Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security? Executive Director of the Office of State and Local Government Coordination and Preparedness at the Department of Homeland Security?

Yeah, those positions aren't important. Why not give them to those known only for the asskissing abilities and unwavering loyalty to King George.
