Quickie: Condi Just Wants 1,100 New Underlings, OK?

Hey, that's an average of just over 3 hires a day for the remainder of the administration. Hop to it, OPM!

And, of course, it's Monday, Condi Roundup day!

And what are these new underlings precisely going to do in their fortress-embassies, except fight with members of other agencies for office space, serve as receptionists for visiting Washington VIPs, and send e-mails to headquarters on the "effectiveness" of Bush's epoch-making diplomacy (oh! just forgot: our fearless leader will probably be gone by the time anyone actually gets hired) ...

bush wants to get new staffers onboard under civil service rules so the next president - and we know we'll elect a democrat - won't have all those slots to fill.

Oh, okay, now I can see why he can justify cutting Medicare services along with freezing many other services. This sounds much more important. (snark)

More meat for Condi to chew and spit out.

I keep track of Condoleezza's hairdo so you don't have to.

Dear SparklePony,

This is an important service for me, and for so many who need help staying abreast of Condi's changing hair. I am glad to have found your site. Came here from the amazing FranIAM.

Guess I'll Febreze up my diplomat suit and get me a ticket to IAD. I've been interviewing like hell lately anyway, and I can't think of a better job than rubberstamping visas into Taliban passports for our new overlords Hitlery & Osbama.

Totally kidding. I'm barely able to be diplomatic with people I like. But then many of the people I like are swarthy Asiatic types. So it could work out!

Those state department jobs pay well. I figure at that rate of hiring, they'll not have a lot of time to check references and read resumes. I'm gonna get me some of those government benefits! I hope they have one of those big recruiting fairs at like the World Bank auditorium or Turkey Thicket rec center or something!
