Quitting Bush Administration "Good For Mental Health"

"Spending more time with the family" has become the joke of resignation reasons (trans. "Gettin' the hell out of Dodge while the getting's good!") from high-profile jobs. Thus spake Rob Portman this week (sort of):

When asked whether he was quitting the Bush administration because it would be good for his political future, Rob Portman, the outgoing budget director, replied: “It would be good for my mental health.” Although Mr Portman was joking, a growing list of officials have already acted on that impulse.

Still think Portman was joking?

I don't.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
