4. Keep your hat on. Perry is not smart enough or knowledeable enough to do anything without the

cooperation of career federal employees at the Dept of Energy.

5. Remember he's the guy who couldn't name 3 branches of government he wanted to cut.

The fact that they want to cut *ANY* is disturbing enough.

6. This is a guy who has been promoted way above his level of competence and he knows it.

He will rely on aides and subordinates for everything he does.

9. Perry had no idea nukes were under Energy

He thought it was some gas/oil ambassadorship.



And, according to this DailyKos article (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/1/19/1622155/-Rick-Perry-doesn-t-have-a-clue-what-the-Department-of-Energy-actually-does), Trump's people never asked NNSA staff to stay for a transitional period:

As Gizmodo reported earlier this month, the NNSA chief and his deputy have not been invited to stay on by Trump, and are planning to clear out their desks at noon Friday—marking, Heinrich warned, “the first time in [the agency’s] 16-year history, through four different administrations, in which there will not be any continuity in leadership during a presidential transition.”


So, yeah, so far, so good.

14. If nobody reminds him, he'll probably forget and we can breathe a sigh of relief.

15. It's mind boggling.

They couldn't possibly have found more unqualified people for the positions if they'd tried.
