Who’s Got the Knives Out for Ray Mabus?

Don’t know who Ray Mabus is? I don’t blame you. He’s a former Mississippi governor whom President Obama nominated last week to become secretary of the Navy. If you can name the last four secretaries of the Navy, you … probably work for or serve in the Navy. Point being — respectfully! — not a lot of people pay much attention to the civilian secretaries of the armed services.

So naturally it attracts the attention of the U.S. Naval Institute’s awesomeblog when The New York Times runs a piece about an embarrassing and messy divorce that Mabus and his ex-wife endured. The White House, rightly, tells the paper’s Jim Rutenberg that Mabus’ divorce is irrelevant to his potential service in the administration. But the Naval Institute’s contrib-blogger Springboared wonders:

Airing dirty laundry is, sadly, a tradition for high-level appointees. But given how orchestrated anti-nominee media campaigns can be, is this New York Times piece a first salvo in a messy nomination drama?

Springboared also finds a 1971 picture of Mabus as a young Naval officer wearing a seriously righteous beard. If the man’s divorce will be an issue in his hearing, why not get on his case about his facial hair? (Not that Springboared is saying that, but still. Honestly. Let’s grow up as a country, shall we?)
