    Years ago I remember reading the following Peanuts comic...

    Charlie Brown: You think my dad doesn’t know anything about cars? One time he heard this loud clanking sound coming from under the hood. But he took care of it right away.
    Linus: Did he fix it?
    Charlie Brown: No, he turned up the radio louder so he couldn’t hear it.​

    What does this have to do with Scott Pruitt? Well...

    I swear to god, if this administration ever starts doing public service announcements, they’ll be under the umbrella title, “The Less You Know”.

    This guy is absolutely stunning. For a group of people who hate various parts of big government & it's waste, they sure do love spending it's money.

    It must be great to get all those perks for being horrible at your job.

    All part of the plan to dismantle our government. Put people into positions where they are completely against the division they lead: Scott Pruitt, Betsy DeVos, Rick Perry.... They are doing their best to simply do away with their departments.

    Perry is doing a lousy job, but I am amused to hear from numerous DOE officials how Perry is constantly saying that he was fundamentally wrong to ever suggest doing away with DOE.

    That was before he knew what they did.

    Not so much that, but they give him a steady paycheck and boundless opportunities for graft on a scale that was beyond his imagination as governor of Texas.

    You left out the defining quote from that story:
    What is meant by making water pollution a priority is not quite clear, but the evidence parses towards facilitating it.
