Obfuscation 101

What would happen if one of us went into a job interview and didn't know the answer to a question? Better yet, what would happen if we went into a job interview and demonstrated that we knew nothing about the job we had applied for?

Well...here is the Democratic candidate for Attorney General in the state of Virginia, in one of those embarrassing moments:



(Shamelessly lifted from one of my favorite blogs, I Hate The Media.)

Isn't it time we start demanding better choices?

Look at what we were stuck with in 2008 for President? Look at what we ended up with. That's what we will get again, if we, the people, do not demand better service from our elected officials.

If the people of Virginia elect this fool, they have no one to blame but themselves. I don't know how much better the GOP candidate is, but I would be willing to bet that he has to be better equipped than this Bozo.

Electing a clown like this is precisely how a Barney Frank or Charlie Rangel is born. Let them BS their way into a job and next thing you know they are so entrenched and so disconnected to the people they are supposed to serve, you will have a difficult time getting them out.

Think about it America. Think long and hard before you pull levers for con artists, dressed in $1000 suits.

Great example of the slimy nature of a politician. I doubt they've changed much from the time of Aristotle yet people keep falling for them.

AC,

They are ultra slimy, low-life, bottom feeding, reptiles. Other than that, most of them are probably okay.

Let’s look at it another way … (sigh) …

Job applicant: Hello Sir ! (or) Hello Madam !

Human Resources Manager: Please present your original birth certificate, with times, dates, places and witnessed signatures.

Job applicant: No.

Human Resources Manager: Well, please present your university transcripts.

Job applicant: No.

Human Resources Manager: How about your passport…?

Job applicant: No.

Human Resources Manager: Sorry, we can't give you a security clearance. We won't even offer you a job with our organization ...

... but you can be President of the United States of America, if you want !

Quite a few western democratic countries (all of which have established procedures in place for for political candidates (including presentation of witnessed certificate of birth/nationality) are laughing at America.


The USA takes another stop towared being a third world banana republic. No country is eternal. (sigh)


Best,

That suit was no more than $500. :)

Funny. The best part is the end when the staffers try to stop the guy from filming. Think about that. These people signed up to support this dunce - work for him - and they know he's a phony. But that's not a problem. They'll do what's necessary to protect him. Sad, isn't it?

As Arthur Fonzarelli used to say: Correctamundo.

But....it's not this little fact that grieves me so much.

Which country will be the one to assume the position of the shining light that America once shined, on the world? That answer is the one I really fear.

No doubt they have all been promised powerful jobs within his office, so their future depends on sheltering him from the intelligent thinking voter.
