Spencer Abraham tells many lies

Michelle is always apologizing for Missouri's loser ex-senator who is now the Attorney General of the United States. But Michigan also had a senator who lost his bid for re-election in 2000 and was rewarded with a cabinet post--Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham (aka the Yellowcake Doughboy). According to Josh Marshall via Michelle, ol' Spence appointed an unqualified buddy to a job where he determined that those aluminum tubes were for ultra-scary Saddam nukes, was given a big bonus, and then moved on to another job.

Back when I lived in Alabama, I played piano for a first-grade Sunday School class for a few months. One of the kids' favorite songs was "Father Abraham." Everybody sing along to my new words:

Spencer Abraham told many lies
Many lies told Spencer Abraham
He has lied to me, he's lied to you
So let's all go to war!
