As my tweener might say...RPI to Vilsack: I'm Dr. Philin' yo' asx
I figure everybody else is doing it; either for a Party, or with a party, or whatever, but it’s really none of my business.
Anyway, my turn.
Today I’m acting as an official spokes-shill for the Republican Party of Iowa. It’s just for today and it’s only because this is a great press release -- mean enough to make it into blogland unedited…
VILSACK RETURNS TO A STATE RIFE WITH SCANDAL
Welcome back Governor, while you were out giving speeches about incompetence…
DES MOINES – During the recent uncovering of bloated salaries and misappropriated money at the Central Iowa Employment and Training Consortium (CIETC), one key element in Iowa was missing; leadership by Governor Tom Vilsack.
“Where was Governor Vilsack during one of the largest
scandals in recent history? He was traveling the country,” said Republican Party of Iowa Executive Director Cullen Sheehan. “The Governor finally weighed in yesterday, a few days late. This is a sorry lack of leadership in which Tom Vilsack has placed his personal political ambitions above his public responsibilities to Iowans. To top it off, he was pointing fingers at the President in Iowa while several of his appointees were hiding the truth from taxpayers.” Pittsburgh

"It's puzzling that Vilsack would call the President incompetent while his own appointees are busy trying to cover up a massive scandal. Firing two people does not even begin to solve this problem,” continued Sheehan. “This is just the tip of the iceberg, and Governor Vilsack needs to stay in
to resolve this. This type of corruption is not acceptable in Iowa .” Iowa
Sheehan concluded, “There has been a lot of examples of mismanagement or no management at all in several state departments during the past year. If Governor Vilsack cannot manage state departments effectively, then who is ever going to trust him running our country? This lack of oversight and wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars is unacceptable and the Governor should be here to clean this mess up.”
The RPI press release gets a little preachy-political in the last two paragraphs, but overall a good bit of much deserved snark. My suggestion, stick with the sarcasm ‘til the bitter end, it’ll either kill ya’ or make y’all oh so strong.
