WTF: Stupid Hire

Now why would you hire someone for a six year job that you knew they only wanted for two years? And if you knew that they'd start spending gobs of time looking for a new job as soon as they started working for you, you'd be crazy to hire them.

So, are the forty-something percent of Virginians who say they might vote for George Allen crazy? I mean, come on folks, you know that if you reelect him he's gonna start campaigning to be president right after the vote. Do you know how much time these guys spend campaigning? He's not even going to be a part-time senator for the two years -- he's going to spend every second he possibly can kissing up to Iowans and New Hampshirites, not working for Virginians. Come on, you're not that gullible, are you?


Oh, and one of Mfume's sons apparently decided to back Steele: http://www.wjla.com/news/stories/0906/362890.html
