Pat Robertson’s continuing influence on the Bush administration

Complementing Jim Still’s post about “The Family,” Ed Brayton writes at Dispatches from the Culture Wars about how Pat Robertson’s Regent University Law School, a 4th-tier law school barely half of whose graduates pass the bar exam, has managed to be the source of at least 150 appointees to the Bush administration. Perhaps the fact that Bush appointed former Regent University law school dean Kay Coles James as the director of the Office of Personnel Management has something to do with it?

Not surprisingly, these appointees seem to have been chosen for ideological loyalty rather than competence, a longstanding pattern for the Bush administration.
