12/7/16 – The Cabinet of Doom

OK, I really think he’s just picking names out of a hat, so I don’t waste time wondering how he’s decided on these cabinet posts.

But, OK. Maybe he thinks these areas all need a fresh perspective from someone outside the system as it has been until now. Maybe these dudes are just supposed to go be Everyman and ask profound questions of childlike simplicity, and this will somehow improve these areas.

Here’s what I think about that. A fresh perspective is not what anybody wants when it’s your cardiac bypass surgery. You don’t want an Everyman at the wheel of your 747. Childlike simplicity is not going to solve problems, it will only make them worse. At best this is a stunt; at worst, it’s like watching a murder in slow motion.
