No More Czars

Commentary from Will Wilkinson on the unfortunate habit of naming "czars."

"Remember America's can-do, point man in the war on drugs, the so-called "Drug Czar?" Well, if you like czars, you'll love President-elect Barack Obama. He's proposing a new "technology czar," he's considering a "climate czar," and he's even floated the idea of a "car czar."

In tough times like these, America does not need a dose of tragic Russian authoritarianism. America does not need more czars."

Listen to the rest here.
