What Planet Is He From?

Tommy Thompson, secretary of health and human services announced his resignation today. OK – no sweat. There’s a lot of that going around at the moment. Cabinet secretaries are bailing, which isn’t all that unusual at the end of a president’s first term.

What strikes me as weird or foolhardy or both was the comment he made: “”For the life of me,” he said, “I cannot understand why the terrorists have not attacked our food supply because it is so easy to do.””

Am I missing something? Is he going to tell where he hides his house keys too? What was gained by this? Are there terrorists now saying, “Damn, we should have come up with that.”

Maybe it will make sense later. Maybe not.

  1. Thank you!!! When we were watching the six o’clock news last night and the announcement was made, I said to my husband, “wait for it.” He didn’t understand because he hadn’t heard about the resignation. He said, “what?” and I said, “wait for it.”

    And there it was. That unbelievable statement. And my husband said, “he didn’t just say that did he?”

    But yes. Yes he did.

  2. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the administration wasn’t listening to his warnings before his resignation, and now by publically making this statement, they have no choice but to do something about it.
