Oh, for fuck's sake.

I'm not completely blind to the ability of the Democratic Party to be a noxious den of weasels at times, but has this guy been in a coma for the past 8 years?
Past presidents have understood the importance of keeping special interests out of the White House. They may have given up the agencies, but most ensured that the White House staff worked for the president, not for his constituencies. President Obama has no grasp of this. To stick with the climate change issue, to choose global warming fundamentalists as personal advisers on this issue is absurd; there is no chance that the skeptics’ case will receive representation.

I seem to remember appointees from the previous administration who were philosophically opposed to the existence of the departments they were heading. Or perhaps he's mistaking plain incompetence for lack of political motive?

Also, NB, doing this:
As a free market man, I see the Democrat Party as consisting of a collection of parasites on the productive economy that has lost any capacity to understand that they all depend on a healthy host.
marks you as either a complete illiterate or a conservative hack. Democrat is a noun, democratic is an adjective. One just happens to sound contemptuous, and has seen a rise in use over the past 10 or so years in conservative publications. It's roughly equivalent to the left-blogosphere's use of "Pubs" to refer to republicans, only it's been used in large-scale media as well.
