15. The corollary to this is that BushCo also managed to
place their ideological comrades throughout the existing civil service, above and beyond the political appointees that are part of the administration and the "new jobs" that were created for purely political appointees.

So yes, I concur with everything here. But would add that, at a minimum, every single person who got a civil service job during the past eight years through political placement (those political appointments that have been "regularized" since) or by some process other than "open" selection (competitive exams and meeting the regular ... not some subsequently revised by BushCo ... criteria for the position) should be removed and replaced. How to get rid of them? Let Waxman continue with the job that he has begun but with a wider scope.

For every individual so identified, let their qualifications and performance be reviewed, not just by so-called "superiors" but also by those who serve under them. These leeches purport to love the private sector so much. Let them put their money where their mouths are and let those who actually believe in government service do the serving in their place. :applause:
