Leaving for Jobs

Former bush presidency backer Heather Wilson has to leave New Mexico to find a job.  She has been named as President of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.  Seriously, congratulations to her.  It is a respectable achievement.  I am sure she will feel at home in South Dakota.  And being president of a school of mining will fit right in with her record as never seeing a landscape or watershed that couldn't be ravaged.

Pretty soon the GOP Bernalillo County Chair will need to leave NM for a job too.  His name is Steve Kush.  Where do they get these guys?  After his Facebook running commentary on supporters of a minimum wage hike for the county  which was sexist and a sophomoric performance, I don't see how the party can ever hire him back.  As one of my commenters said, "Whenever Republicans say any thing they believe they have to apologize."  How true.  Let's hope he can get a job that at least pays at the rate of the minimum wage he so hated.

Good riddance, good bye, adios, etc., to Heather. I for one am glad she got the job. Enough is enough. Let South Dakota deal with her right wing politics.

I will have to admit, it is one hell of a good job. I wish she was not part of the "dark side". Congratulations are also in order.

Is she taking her husband with her? Couldn't hurt GSD for him to go away, too.

So far, we have Domenici living in DC and Wilson moving to SD. Anyone else out there wondering why?

Pete and Heather pretty much did what ever oil, gas and mining told them too. Nothing left for them here now that they are powerless and in Pete's case, disgraced.

Maybe we will see a return of all the people that PD and HW alienated?

Darn. All the good Heather shots are already taken.

Oh but what remarkably astute people you have reading, and writing, your web log, not to mention funny. T'is a good day.

Heather Wilson is an incredibly smart and hard-working person. She is especially good with understanding and promoting R&D. I did not agree with her politics but I consider her to be an asset that New Mexico cannot afford to lose. I'm sorry to see her go.

Yep, I think Ms. Wilson's political career is done, but I'm amazed she didn't take a lucrative job as a lobbyist. Too bad we can't have Santa Fe resident, Rumsfeld, join her.

Lobbyists tend to have charm and personality.
