So the horror story I keep hearing is that you become a PhD and your life becomes politics while you delegate the science to grad students. (This of course, seems to gloss over the whole post-doc position).

Nonetheless, with how much I hear professors complaining about bureaucratic navigation, doesn't that mean there's a job market for a kind of "accountant-lawyer of the sciences" so that when you start running a lab and asking your own research questions you can actually be part of the research while your poli-o-sci adviser handles the bureaucracy?

In any normal upper-level position you will fight for funding for whatever project you feel deserves it (probably your own).
