This, folks, is how you lose all credibility. From Fox News:
A top EPA official has apologized for comparing his agency’s enforcement strategy to Roman crucifixion — as Republican Sen. James Inhofe launched an investigation and told Fox News the comments are part of a campaign of “threats” and “intimidation.”
Crucifixion? That’s your job? I’d like to see that performance review. Look, this guy is every bureaucrat in every bureaucracy; they are creatures of politics and partisan motivations and personal biases. These are the people in charge of our planet, to put it bluntly. And they’re not up to the task. It’s time to remove them from the equation and set rules that can’t be gamed.
