On Czars 0

The fuss in the wingnutosphere about “White House Czars” is crap.

“Czars” is a media term. The title is “Advisor” (or some parallel thereunto). Their charter is to focus on specific topics on which administrative authority is scattered amongst a number of federal agencies–in other words, to make themselves experts in something or other.

They have no power nor authority, except to suggest policy to the president.

To the extent that wingnuts fulminate about “White House Czars,” they betray their (often willful) ignorance about how government works.

There, I’ve got that off my chest.
