The Worst Is the Best We Can Expect - The Ballad of Scott Pruitt

("Scott Pruitt, Man of Little Shame")

Being wholly unprepared and unqualified, as Ben Carson admitted he was to run HUD, Rick Perry taking over an agency he couldn't recall but vowed to end, or  Betsy DeVos,  intending to make public education less than before her reign of terrible, makes it hard for one standout to be deemed the undisputed leader of this rat pack.

But Mr. Pruitt has managed to be the biggest rodent of all. His proclivity for personal excess on the public dole, combined with his handing out death to those he serves by fiercely protecting a dying industry, defines him as the worst of the worst.

Considering who these men and women report to, the worst is the best we can expect.

Don’t forget Ryan Zinke, another rat to be reckoned with.

Sadly and horrifyingly true.

What is still worse is that what we see is the tip of the iceberg.
To be sure, Pruitt has given the 'green light' to untold millions in project kickbacks.
