I was thinking “Washington Bureaucrats” or “Washington Central Planners” sounded good.

I suggest the “Washington Generals”.

If you are a fan of the Harlem Globetrotters, you’ll understand.

Par for the course - they renamed their NBA team the “Wizards” after “Bullets” was just too oppressive - formerly the Baltimore Bullets, BTW.

It won’t stop until fans disappear.
