DAG McCrony hires an advisor

DAG McCrony is clueless, but apparently someone told him that his approval rating is continuously dropping and more people realize he's a clown.

So he decided to hire a political advisor.

But he can't even do that right. That must have been SOME conversation:

[DAG McCrony and his senior aides discuss hiring a political advisor]
"We need someone who's good at turning around negative images".

"I know -- how about Jon Felts? He worked for George W. Bush *AND* for the American Banking Association. Bush and bankers had their share of troubles, but everybody LOVES them now!".

"Great idea. BONUS: He worked for Karl Rove and Danny Quayle too! And everybody LOVES them!"

"Give Felts a call. We'll pay anything. The state has plenty of money and that 'reducing the size of government' stuff is just rhetoric".

"I'm sure that Felts can do for the governor what he did for all those others!"



Poor Pat. Clueless is right.

I feel even more sorry for the Afghans

From the piece:

He is known as an adventuresome soul, who after his White House days, spent a year in Afghanistan teaching Afghans how to run for office.

Sounds like Felts...

...is the living embodiment of The Peter Principle...May his talent shine.

How Did I Miss This?

Bush, Bankers, Afghans, Rove and Quayle.

But somehow I didn't catch Felts's crowning achievement:

[Felts] was assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney for political affairs

Now THAT'S the kind of thing you want on your resume, eh? Perhaps second only to "assistant to Vice President Dick Cheney for quail hunting".

Anyone who would hire this guy as a political strategist has to be a clueless clown. Oh, wait, that already was established. :-/

I hope...

....Felts advises the DAG to stop all that hand clenching when he speaks. It looks so contrived and disingenuous when he does it.

And we know he's fakin' it.

So how much

are We the Taxpayers paying this hack, anyway? Is it more than the salary of a teacher aide, which we supposedly can't afford?

Ah, well, I guess no amount of taxpayer money is too much to pay for a toadie to follow McCrory around with a pooper scooper and a pocket full of doggie bags, cleaning up the little piles he leaves across the state.

I Wondered the Same Thing

The article didn't specify how much of our money will be paid to Felts to issue all of the follow-up corrections after DAG McCrony opens his mouth ("what Guvnor Pat MEANT to say was...").

And I'd really like to know what his salary will be. We know that DAG McCrony likes to pay his people very well with taxpayer money.

Since he will be a public employee, maybe Fran and the Uncivil Civitas Institute will publish his salary as a public service. :-/
