Denny Hastert is announcing his retirement on Friday..."that's definitive"
Yes, the rumors were true. I think it's touching that so many of Bush's gang want to spend time with their respective families, don't you?
Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Dennis Hastert is expected to announce on Friday his retirement from Congress, a House Republican aide said on Tuesday.
"He is going to announce a retirement ... that's definitive," said the aide, who asked not to be identified.
His term runs through next year, and it's not clear whether or not he's leaving before then. Pity. Just in case anyone isn't clear about why we're not big fans of his:
The former high school teacher and wrestling coach was a loyal supporter of President George W. Bush's agenda, including the Iraq war.
Yes, it's because he used to be a wrestling coach.
