Washington Post Misses the Point, Quelle Surprise

This time, it's about the aggressive policy to outsource civil service positions to private contractors, where they say that the zeal of Bush and His Evil Minions is because they ,"entered office with a deep skepticism of government. He saw competitive sourcing as a way to improve agencies' performance."

Any objective evaluation of Republicans, and government, including Bush, shows that they have no interest at all in improving agencies performance. One need only read their own declarations. They find government programs, with the exception of the state security apparatus, to be evil, and to the degree that it is less efficient, they see this lack of effectiveness as an independent good.

Contracting out government work is not about efficiency, it's about patronage and rewarding contributors. It frees up money to shovel to one's supporters.
