How freakin’ desperate can a person get? Well, check out exactly how desperate.
See, this is exactly the problem with all this ingrained, union-type mentality that exists within the Party apparatchik. The best and brightest to the front of the line? Nope.

What serves to exacerbate this problem? Every damn time an out-of-stater comes to town, and lends credence to those who they may or may not be completely aware of who they really are lending their good name to for some $peaking engagement *wink-wink-nudge-nudge, Johnny*.
