Johanns quits

rich/ September 20, 2007/ Food/

Mike Johanns, the US Agriculture Secretary, announced he’s quitting to run for the now open senate seat in Nebraska. Wired really said it best

“…by all appearances, Johanns wasn’t grossly corrupt, didn’t hand out more corporate freebies than you’d expect from someone of his background and position, didn’t break the law and pretend that it never happened. Given the science-skewing and dishonesty that’s permeated policy in other parts of the Bush administration, this sort of old-fashioned malfeasance (“Yes, I don’t like what you’ve done — but at least you’re honest about it!”) almost makes me feel like he did a good job.”

Destined for an illustrious career in the Senate.
