This May Be the Most Badass GAO Report I’ve Ever Seen

November 24th, 2008

The report, Confirmation of Political Appointees: Eliciting Nominees’ Views on Management Challenges within Agencies and across Government, is thorough, it’s mostly right on, and it acknowledges problems without the usual “but we hear that they’re working on it” business.  Instead, they say “We’ve been told that they’re working on it but nothing ever changes.  What gives?”
