DOT Seeks An “Associate Administrator For Administration”

In our effort to be full service, I am posting a new governmental position for any of our contributions looking for gainful (baneful?) employment. I saw an interesting item on Reddit for a position with the Department of Transportation of “Associate Administrator for Administration” at the Department of Transportation. Now that is a bureaucrats dream — administering the administrators.

The job earns as much as $179,700. This makes me want to give up my application for “Back Washer” and “Napper Tender.”

    Prof. Turley’s one request is that in return for getting to read and comment on his blog posts, we act like adults and handle ourselves civilly. In practice that pretty much amounts to any amount of passionate discussion of ideas, but self censure when it comes to how we address those who hold those ideas. It’s tough, but the last couple of weeks aside, we’ve got a pretty good track record.

    How you act here has absolutely nothing to do with KDE, and everything to do with yourself. The question is, are you the kind of house guest that respects other people’s wishes, or are you the guy tracking in mud and feeding their dog hamburgers after they asked you not to?

  4. Since klownderosa has no respect for facts or truth, since he can not be moved when he is shown to be in error I see no reason he should be afforded anything other than a name befitting his behavior. Lets ponder that shall we?

    to paraphrase MASH:
    Klownderosa: “I don’t have to take this abuse!”
    Frankly: “But k, you invite the abuse it would be impolite of you not to accept it.”

  5. Wait, do not ever try to steal my clowns again. He/She/It is gainfully employed at circus-circus.

  6. KDE,

    Have you ever considered a career as a soccer player?
