Friday Funny: The Real Reason for Ray LaHood's Resignation

The crack investigative team at the satirical newspaper The Onion has revealed the real reason for outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood's resignation. He's been implicated in the mysterious disappearance of a "beautiful country road."

What will we miss most about Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood now that he's decided to resign? His support for high-speed rail? His mission to reduce distracted driving? His tabletop speeches?

Nope. It'll probably be his role as fodder for The Onion (and others), who've made him the focus of several humorous news stories. During his time in office, LaHood has created a highway concert series, flipped out on a pothole in Baltimore, and spent 3 hours cleaning up the wikipedia page on roundabouts. You can find some of his other notable achievements here
