Agent McConnell and My Generation’s “Greatest Mind on Antitrust Law”
If we’ve learned anything from the pending IRS scandal, it’s that bureaucrats matter. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell apparently thinks so. According to a recent National Review article, McConnell, unlike most minority leaders, has put a great deal of effort into recommending highly qualified individuals for spots on the more than 100 bipartisan agencies and commissions in the federal bureaucracy. He views his role in recommending appointees as a way to combat regulatory overreach and equip a “farm team” that will be poised to take over the reins of agencies the next time there’s a Republican in the White House.
