We are in the era of Democratic Extreme Girls -- Big Nanny handmaidens who demand control of your children, your health care, your energy use, your pocketbook and your news. And that's just for starters. If you think President Obama will move to the center after the midterms, think again.

Liberal bloggers are buzzing about the possibility that environmental czar Carol Browner could be appointed White House chief of staff next year. The Atlantic's Marc Ambinder floated the trial balloon this week, arguing that despite zero national security experience, Browner "has more than enough experience dealing with Congress, with the rest of the government, and is a subject matter expert on the subject that will occupy a considerable amount of the president's attention in the next two years."

Browner is the neon green bureaucrat who sits on the board of the George Soros-funded, anti-business Center for American Progress and was listed by the Socialist International umbrella group as a member of the "Commission for a Sustainable World Society" until her czar appointment was announced in 2009. A ruthless, power-grabbing regulator since her days in the Clinton administration, Browner has spearheaded the Environmental Protection Agency's war on carbon, with EPA Secretary Lisa Jackson serving as her front-woman. Their anti-carbon agenda's job-killing effects are so alarming that several House Democrats have signed on to legislation curtailing the draconian greenhouse gas emissions rules.

You want to talk about "mean"? Browner has plenty of "experience" bullying American business executives. She infamously told auto industry execs last year "to put nothing in writing, ever" regarding secret negotiations she orchestrated on a deal to increase federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards. She is salivating at the prospect of ramming through the massive, increasingly unpopular cap-and-tax plan in the lame-duck session. And more recently, she gained hands-on experience telling falsehoods to the American public about the BP oil spill. The independent presidential commission on the disaster criticized her earlier this month for repeatedly misrepresenting the findings of a federal analysis, which she claimed showed that "more than three-quarters of the oil is gone."
