Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse at HHS ...

So now it's Tommy Thompson's turn to flee from the train wreck that is the Bush administration, stepping down from his position to no doubt spend more time with his family. And, naturally, the jockeying to replace him has already begun, with one of the potential candidates being none other than Newt "the Newtster" Gingrich, whose ideas on health and compassion involved serving his then-wife with divorce papers while she was in hospital being treated for cancer.

Newt Gingrich as secretary of Health and Human Services. Oh, yeah, that's going to work out really well.
