Shipping Policy

I ran in to this article on how the Obama Administration was going to pick Penny Pritzker as Secretary of Commerce. Pritzker, of course, was a player in the subprime crisis with a failing bank and all.

The interesting part is that this story went out last night, ran in to a wall of criticism, and has now been scrubbed off the Inter-Tubes. Just like the required community service for high school and college was changed after it was mocked.

So maybe the Obama Administration will be something new, the Beta Government. That would operate by slamming some policy together, shipping it out, and when the customers voters don’t like it just declare it a “beta version” that shouldn’t have shipped then put out an improved policy with bug fixes. Maybe getting a reputation for being one of the most leak prone White Houses in recent history is a feature, not a bug.
