What Spencer said. I really wish people would not do all this fake reporting on who’s going to get which jobs. Most of the time, there’s not even an answer to uncover. Nobody knows who’s going to be Secretary of Education because nobody picked a Secretary of Education! Meanwhile, when the decisions are made they’re announced — it’s not like unearthing a secret network of off-the-books prisons, you’re not genuinely contributing to the stock of knowledge.

Of course speculation is fun. And people should have fun. But they ought to just label their speculations as that — speculations — based on information about who has ties to whom and who might serve which goals, but not on actual information about anyone’s thinking.
