What’s unusual about appointing people to do the business of government? All governments do it because that’s how you get things done. The term “czar” is irrelevant – its a politically derived word for the purpose of ridicule. However, your use of the word is an example of the tendency to divide rather than co-operate. .But, I’m really referring to congress. Is it possible McConnell’s scorched earth policy might be replaced with doing stuff for the good of the country? I’ll believe it when I see it.
