Secretary of Energy Abraham Resigns

Today, Spencer Abraham, the Bush appointed Secretary of Energy announced his intention to resign his position. Environmentalists everywhere rejoiced.

Abraham, who has received thanks for his service from the White House receives no thanks from us but for his resignation.

Ironically, the man appointed as Secretary of Energy actually sponsored a bill in 1999 during his term in the Senate that would abolish the Department of Energy. Under President Bush, Abraham served as head of the Department of Energy. That's just not right.

The mission statement of the Department of Energy includes, "to advance the national, economic, and energy security of the united states." Could President Bush nominate anyone worse than Spencer Abraham to achieve that goal? Probably not, but don't misunderestimate him.
