Another One Bites the Dust

Another corrupt official in the Bush administration is resigning. It's the head of Housing and Urban Development, Alphonso Jackson.
While it's good news that another corrupt Bushie has been pushed out, if you hadn't noticed, there's rather a crisis right now that would fal directly under his department, and the fact that he has just resigned makes things all the more difficult. Hilzoy draws the obvious conclusion.
Take-home lesson: don't appoint dreadful people in the first place. Then they won't have to resign at the worst possible moment.

I think this lesson collides with the Bush principles of governance.
