Lesson One: Don't Put Heritage Foundation Hacks In Charge Of ANYTHING

And here's why:

WASHINGTON - Poor prewar planning left the United States without enough skilled workers to efficiently rebuild Iraq's economy and public works, according to a report issued Monday. The study by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction provided a new explanation for the lagging reconstruction effort. Surveys by the Bush administration and congressional auditors have blamed insurgent attacks and the high cost of security. Thanks to inadequate planning, the report said, early occupation officials lacked enough reconstruction staffers who knew what they were doing.

It seems like a logical conclusion to draw that people who think that government can't do anything right except wage wars of conquest and execute people, regardless of innocence one suspects, shouldn't ever be put in charge of any governmental program. How can anyone have any confidence that they won't screw up intentionally as a way of proving their ideology? Even subconsciously?

Anti-government hacks certainly don't have a record of success in running government programs. Look at what Reagan, Bush I and now Bush II have done on that greatest of all conservative bogeymen, the deficit. Conservatives are incompetent. That's their track record.
I recall that the Heritage Foundation, in particular Mrs. Clarence Thomas, was in charge of vetting applications for the Bush Administration.
