In a surprise move, Trump will nominate Tom Vilsack, currently head of the Department of Agriculture, to follow himself. A strong supporter of genetic experimentation with the world's food supply and a promoter of billionaire farmers, Vilsack promises to assist Monsanto in developing new food sources. They include combining mastodon and cow genes to produce more meat, crossing watermelons with potatoes to boost French fry production, and legalizing new untested chemicals to enhance American's dinner plate.

Former Fox TV commentator Mike Huckabee will lead the Department of Education. He strongly supports teaching Christianity in public schools and replacing science text books with the Bible. He promises to dismantle central control and return education to the home, where it belongs. Education funding will shift to churches, the home and private schools, before he abolishes the Department of Education.

Trump has not settled on other cabinet positions but rumors are flying as fast as a pinball through the Twilight Zone: Bernie Madoff may receive a presidential pardon to become head of Treasury; Dick Cheney may come out of retirement to head Homeland Security; and Trump's daughter, Ivanka, is rumored to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

At this time, Trump is considering taking over the responsibilities of other Cabinet posts himself, as he has little need for other opinions.
