    Somewhere between "a corporation that acted like the government would fail" and "the government should behave more like a corporation," there's a logical disconnect in this argument.

    In fact, I'd like to know how many of you out there would buy the stock of a company whose CEO only had two years of experience and that was with a national company as junior middle management.
