A cabinet indictment or a laundry list of where those in the administration stand.

“The common theme with these Cabinet secretaries is loud, uninformed rhetoric; a lack of practical experience; a certain utopian zealotry – and an expectation that there are rules for government grandees and quite different ones for the rest of us.”

Professor Hanson says it is a Cabinet gone wild and explains exactly why.

“We’ve had some unusual Cabinet secretaries in past administrations – Earl Butz, John Mitchell and James G. Watt come to mind – but never anything quite like the present bunch.”

A lot of little things can add up. Some of the incidents and events Hanson lists are little only in that they don’t get much exposure or pale in comparison to other items.
