How funny is it that former Department of Health and Human Services Repug hanger-on Tommy Thompson officially announced yesterday that he’s seeking that party’s nomination as a presidential candidate?
I wonder what he’ll run on, by the way? His famous moment when he wondered why al Qaeda “hadn’t poisoned our food supply” yet? His complete and utter failure to help track down the source of anthrax-laced letters that circulated primarily around Capitol Hill after 9/11 (this fell under his purview somewhat, but this was more of a John Ashcroft/Abu Gonzales-DOJ failure than anything else)? His chronic mismanagement of this nation’s supply of flu vaccine?
(All of these golden moments are recounted here, by the way; I know at least one of the links to an old CNN story has expired, and I’ll try to update that.)
And besides, wasn’t this story reported on already last November?
