For an important (but usually low-profile) job, Trump has appointed a political crony instead of someone qualified. What a surprise.

It's like 1984 all around. The Ed sec doesn't believe in public schools, USDA guy not a scientist, he's doing them all this way- it's surreal. Evil or Very Mad

In the November 2011 Republican candidate debates, Rick Perry was asked which departments he'd eliminate. He answered, "Commerce, Education, and, um, the third one.  Um."  He could not remember the name of the third one.

He later confirmed it was Energy.

Guess which department he was nominated for by Trump, confirmed by Congress, and now heads?

When Perry accepted the job, he had no idea what is was. He thought it was essentially a traveling salesman for American energy companies. And now he's in charge of our nukes. Sad

In a small way Trump is performing a valuable service.

He is taking know-nothing conservatives and forcing them to educate themselves, one-at-a-time, by appointing them as heads of government agencies they thought could be eliminated. I suspect each one of them comes away with a new respect for the people reporting to them, and they probably become among the most ardent supporters of their departments. Alas, eliminating ignorance among conservatives is a never ending and thankless task, since it is so much easier to be clueless.

I couldn't disagree with you more on this.
Every one of these uneducated and unqualified appointees has only one thing in mind: "What's in it for me?"

Yeah, I was thinking of her when I wrote this. I'm afraid I can't even sell that bass-ackward optimism to myself.
