Inquiring minds ask this regarding President Obama’s OMB nomination: “To direct what?”

From the Wall Street Journal:

President Barack Obama on Monday announced he is nominating Clinton administration veteran Sylvia Mathews Burwell to be his budget chief.

Ms. Burwell is a veteran of budget battles, having worked in top posts inside the Clinton administration’s White House, budget office and Treasury Department. She is being nominated to become director of the Office of Management and Budget, a key policy-making slot that has broad influence on tax and spending proposals.

Now all the budget director needs is a budget to direct.

The administration’s budget director will work closely with Michael Moore’s dietician to determine who has the most futile and disregarded job in the country.

Burwell should fit right in. She’s got plenty of experience giving away money:

Since 2001, Burwell has worked in philanthropy, helping to give away billions of dollars to deserving endeavors for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in Seattle, first as executive vice president from 2001-2002; as chief operating officer from 2002-2006; then as president of the Global Development program until the end of 2011.

Billions? Chump change! I’m sure with the proper incentives they can get her to step it up a notch.
