What Washington Gets Wrong: The Unelected Officials Who Actually Run the Government and Their Misconceptions about the American People

forget New York and Los Angeleez, this is about how our federal lifers represent the most delusional of bubble zones where contempt for the American people is the norm.

i didn't read it but i saw Mr. Lamb interview the author on that website; he was talking about how the federales think they're hot shots who're taking a pay cut to patriotically serve the country, but many of them would be unemployable in the private sector.

the author seemed like someone who attended Objectivist Workshops in the 1970s, but still, he was drawing on a good lot of Zogby, Monmouth, and Pew data.

David Brooks said pretty much the opposite, I think on the Charlie Rose show where it was a better interview than usu because Bob Costa was substituting for Charlie Rose who was off getting his second baboon heart.  David Brooks was saying how the government workers he met were almost like his loved ones the way they worked so hard and tried to be strrong.
