No administrator for administration left behind!

"Associate Administrator for Administration" at the Department of Transportation,
which pays $119,554 to $179,700. It seems that this person will do administrative work to maintain the layer of bureaucracy that "coordinates" the DOTs research programs. The new hire will also give "advice and assistance in directing, coordinating, controlling" etc. this little fiefdom. You don't have to be Peter Drucker to realize that this position does not have to exist. -- Obama: "Not much further we can cut" The Daily Caller

If this story gains any real traction, you can bet that within 24 hours Media Matters, MSNBC, Kos and the usual gang of idiots will tout this job as the most important, critical and necessary position in the history of mankind.

I think I'll traipse over to Amazon and watch the movie Brazil.

I would apply for this position, but I'm not qualified :-)
