Schwarzenegger appoints the “Space Commander” to a state post

There are some who say that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger addled himself by abusing steroids and marijuana years ago. I had my doubts about that, but today the Total Buzz blog revealed that Schwarzenegger has appointed Santa Ana Councilman Carlos “Space Commander” Bustamante to the Fair Employment and Housing Commission.

I am not sure what Bustamante knows about Fair Employment and Housing. But Lord knows he has run through a lot of jobs. You have to wonder though about the wisdom of putting him on this commission, when Santa Ana is the county leader in home foreclosures in the current mortgage crisis.

And Bustamante is backing the ill-conceived Renaissance Plan – that does NOT mention anything about affordable housing. Moreover, he is now on the Board of Directors of the Santa Ana Business Bank. As if he did not have enough conflict of interest before, as a Councilman, now he is a state commissioner. Not good.

Plus Bustamante is a part of the most dysfunctional City Council in Orange County! He got blown out of the water last year when he ran for the First Supervisorial District. Maybe Schwarzenegger appointed him as some sort of affirmative action for politicians who are lame?

Perhaps Schwarzenegger was just repaying the alien that endorsed him when he ran for Governor, by giving the “Space Commander” a state post…
