Like little stars.
With the resignation of Alberto Gonzales, there will be lots of talk about the disbanding of the president’s inner circle. Gonzales? Gone. Karl Rove? Gone. Harriet Miers? Gone. Dan Bartlett, Scott McClellan, Andy Card, Donald Rumsfeld? All gone.
Well, not all.
CNN is reporting that Bush will likely nominate Michael Chertoff to replace Alberto Gonzales as attorney general and Clay Johnson III to replace Chertoff as the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Who’s Clay Johnson III? As Think Progress reports, Johnson is a prep club pal of the president’s who served as his chief of staff back in Texas. As the New York Times reported earlier this year, Johnson is so devoted to the president that he keeps a George W. Bush doll on his desk.
Johnson, who say he finds it “incredible” that people could think Bush has lied about anything, is currently the deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget. His homeland security experience? As far as we can tell, he has exactly none.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
