Bad Karma

Strange how life works out. I’d just entered the previous post -- the video of Dana Perino -- and the very next thing I read was:

All That Experience and No Place to Go

”Bush appointees who can afford the luxury are taking time off. White House press secretary Dana Perino plans to travel with her husband to volunteer in South Africa at the Living Hope Community Center, a beneficiary of Bush's anti-AIDS initiative. “

Ms. Perino is one of the lucky ones. The gist of the article is that many Bush appointees are having a hard time finding jobs.

”The market is so poor, Davis said, that some senior GOP congressional aides "are fighting over taking a pay cut from $130,000 to $140,000 to just $60,000 to $70,000."

Davis often repeats a saying passed down by his grandfather, a former Nebraska attorney general: "There is nothing as desperate as a defeated politician looking for a job." “

I think I’ll refrain from commenting further.
