A term that seems appropriate

I've been trying to figure out how to describe the folks who messed up at the higher levels of FEMA. And this weekend, thinking of the shakeups that were needed in the Civil War for similar reasons, an appropriate term came to me: "Parade-Grounds General."

It seems we had a lot of Parade-Grounds Generals, when what we needed was people with real field experience.
