Ron Silver Nominated for Position on US Institute of Peace

I can not believe people missed this but I suppose with all the Republican bashing in the news lately, it can be counted as a bit of an oversight. President George W. Bush, who has taken quite a licking from conservative constituents for nominating former Democrat supporter Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court of the United States, has nominated former-liberal now recent-administration supporter Ron Silver, an actor who has appeared in such films as “Mr. Saturday Night” and “Ali”, to be a member of the Board of Directors of the United States Institute of Peace. Not a significantly high position to be sure but it is a bit of an interesting tidbit for the day.
