Aldona Wos is a bad joke. Literally.

It looks like Governor Pope is continuing North Carolina's off-and-on tradition of appointing political hacks to head the Department of Health and Human Services. Be sure to watch between 1:00 and 1:30 in the video, where Wos lavishes praise on the intellectual majesty of the well-read George W. Bush.

Based on this video, it's hard to imagine Pope could have found a more inappropriate person to further degrade DHHS over the next four years. Wos may be an exceptional physician and a good fundraiser, but her ability to smile while lying through her teeth should give everyone pause.

Hat tip to Progressive Pulse.


Shadow government

Gary Pearce explores the emergence of Governor Pope's shadow government. I wonder who will really be doing Wos' job.
