In less than a week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's service will mercifully come to an end. America will be better when he leaves office. Kansas will be much better if he decides to stay away from his adopted home state forever. The latest episode in Pompeo's reign of error came this week. The secretary gave a speech at the headquarters of Voice of America, the international news network supported by the federal government. Pompeo called for VOA to abandon its role as a provider of fact-based journalism to become America's cheerleader instead. He made no mention of the riot at the U.S. Capitol.
