The WSJ broke the news on Friday about Obama’s new “pay czar,” Kenneth Feinberg.
His official title as executive-pay-limiter-in-chief: Special Master of Compensation.
Can’t wait to see his logo.
Next up: Obama appoints the…
…Distinguished Overlord of Oxygen Intake (to limit individual human carbon emissions);
…Royal Captain of Calorie Consumption (to limit weight gain and end obesity);
…Exalted Diva of Diversity Broadcasting (to enforce the Fairness Doctrine and limit exposure to excessive, poisonous conservative opinion on the airwaves).
History footnote: The term “special master” is a legal term referring to court-appointed volunteers who ensure that judicial orders are followed. In common law, “special masters in lunacy” handled psychiatric cases.
“Masters in lunacy” fits the Obama administration nicely, doesn’t it?
