Rethug 'leadership'

So first it was scallions (green onions). Then it was the white onions. Now it's the lettuce.

WASHINGTON - Lettuce was the most likely source of an outbreak of E. coli linked to Taco Bell, federal health officials said Wednesday.

Taco Bell had said contaminated green onions were responsible for the cases of food poisoning - 71 confirmed cases of E. coli in five states, primarily New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, as of Wednesday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


For the people who are supposedly 'keepin' us safer', how is it we can't secure our food supply, let alone figure out exactly how people are being poisioned? Does any government agency do a compentent job anymore? This is what happens when you reward brown-nosing ideologues instead of competent administrators and managers.
