A Matter Of Opinion

Czar talk weighs in on the “czar” controversy.

1. The term is more of a media creation, because their real titles are cumbersome. There’s always been special envoys and advisers who aren’t confirmed by Congress.

2. Glenn Beck’s list of 33 czars is laughable. Shocking, I know.

3. George W. Bush had even more, but no complaints from Congress — or pundits who are suddenly mortified — about that.

As is typical of these faux scandals, one need only look under the hood.
