Symptoms of a Mandate
From Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington via Josh Marshall, this 'help wanted ad':
Viacom's Gail McKinnon sent an e-mail this week to offices in the U.S. House of Representatives regarding a job opening in Viacom's government relations department. The e-mail calls for a male, Republican to fill the open position and reads as follows: "Importance: High We need to hire a junior lobbyist/PAC manager. Attached is a job description. Salary is $85-90K. Must be a male with Republican stripes."
If anyone had any possible doubt that full Republican take-over of all branchs of government meant you can kiss the last fifty years of progress goodbye, think again.
Next up on the chopping block, we'll kill off the social security program...
