I seem to recall that, when Bill Richardson was tapped for the seat, the Commerce Secretary position was considered not worth a rat’s ass in a wheelbarrow. Now all of a sudden, it’s hugely important because Judd “the Pudd” Gregg is being appointed? What the hell does the Commerce Secretary actually do?
And by the way, we know that the Republican Senator will be recusing himself of voting for the Stimulus package. And that’s apparently a huge problem. But what about his replacement? Has she recused herself? Has anyone asked the question?
