POLITICS: Farmacy

I only just recently picked up on this character assassination piece against a Bush appointee to the Department of Agriculture by Will Saletan on Slate. It sounds like there may be no smoking gun legally, but without hearing the other side, Saletan has a pretty good case that this guy shouldn't be trusted to combat the endemic corruption at Ag. Of course, as Saletan rightly notes, that endemic corruption not only isn't illegal, it's virtually the entire point of the Agriculture Department. Yet another example of how Bush is soft on corporate welfare, big spending, and their friends in Congress (i.e., probably about 90-95% of all Members of both Houses).
