Jim Clyburn = the Dwight Schrute of Congress?

Via Pelosi Letter Designating Clyburn Assistant Leader:

Should I receive the privilege of serving as House Democratic Leader, I will be very honored to nominate our outstanding colleague, Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, to serve in the number three House Democratic position. I will also ask the Caucus to designate that position as Assistant Leader.

Interpretation: “We don’t want to give you a real position, so we’re making one up.”

It reminds me of the running gag about Dwight Schrute from The Office, where he claims be Assistant Regional Manager even though his real title is Assistant to the Regional Manager — and where neither title carries any authority or money with it.

Pelosi’s move is the worst kind of affirmative action.
