Via Instapundit a few weeks ago was this report about how the Obama Administration was setting up to conduct an ideological purge of the federal government. Some people think this is a problem but I agree with a Right Wing News writer that it’s a problem only if it does not set a precedent for the next President. If President Obama wants to bring back the spoils system and discard the civil service rules, that’s a transformation I can support.
I expect, though, that as usual a Democratic Party Administration will evade such rules without effort or cost while a GOP Administration will be pilloried for even suggesting it. Ah well.
