Politics of Literalism
A good comment from etdean1 on my "Czars and Secretaries" post:
Keeping track of all the things Glenn Beck doesn't get is a losing battle.
The czar thing also bugged me because it's not an official title. Like if people would have called for the resignation of Tom Delay back in the day because a hammer can't be the Majority Leader. After all, hammers are inanimate objects and it's an affront to American values to have a lifeless tool at such a high office.
Right. No one fills out their IRS forms by listing their occupation as "Czar." If you really wanted an end to "czars," you should ask the media to stop calling people "czars." If you want an end to hired advisers, counselors, staffers, lawyers, and functionaries of other sorts, well, that's a different thing entirely. It's more of an attack on the way capitalism staffs itself.
