Outsourcing 301

Not content to simply outsource jobs and contracts (see RiaF, 3/26/2004, 4/1/2004, 6/2/2004) Willard Mitt has seemingly turned his attention to outsourcing state agencies!

The Fraud Governor's appointments to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst Board of Trustees include three out-of-staters: one from Pennsylvania, one from Colorado, and one from New Jersey. (source: umass.edu)

Guess he couldn't find anyone 'good' among the six-million-plus who are trying to make it in Massachusetts.

Romney has three more appointments to make to the Board this year. Here's guessing he takes one from Utah (natch), one from New Hampshire, and one from Iowa.

All in the name of reform, of course.

Bad Writing? Yeah, We've Got That

Hey, where-oh-where is Willard Mitt's ghost-written tome on the Amazon charts?

Who cares. Because 'sources say' that Romney is number-one-with-a-bullet at his favorite book-seller: Staples.

Seems Tom Stemberg is trying to goose the turgid sales of Romney's tome by placing the book as an impulse item at cash registers across the land. (source: source)

Right between the tape dispensers and the nail clippers.

So which will hit the remainder bins first, Willard Mitt's "work" or Angry Eric Kriss' IPO?

And who will get stuck having paid full price for each?
