>Because clearly there wasn’t an American for the job:

State GOP fills a critical post with Canadian

The California Republican Party has decided no American is qualified to take one of its most crucial positions — state deputy political director — and has hired a Canadian for the job through a coveted H-1B visa, a program favored by Silicon Valley tech firms that is under fire for displacing skilled American workers.

Christopher Matthews, 35, a Canadian citizen, has worked for the state GOP as a campaign consultant since 2004. But he recently was hired as full-time deputy political director, with responsibility for handling campaign operations and information technology for the country’s largest state Republican Party operation, California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring confirmed in a telephone interview this week.

Hilarious! But you know, with the GOP in tatters, maybe they really can’t find an American to do the job. I mean, I wouldn’t do it.

But it gets better:

Matthews was hired by Michael Kamburowski, an Australian citizen who was hired this year as the state GOP’s chief operations officer. But neither new official has experience in managing a political campaign in the nation’s most populous state — and as foreign citizens, neither is eligible to vote.

Dudes! Are you trying to lose elections? Come on! Two of the top state GOP officials can’t even vote because they aren’t citizens? You gotta be kidding me!

  1. >I finally got a F*ckin Gmail account so I could comment here.I’m sure the irony escapes them. And, the polls look good at the moment. But, do you have any idea how gun-shy I am about feeling optimistic about 08?

  2. > But, do you have any idea how gun-shy I am about feeling optimistic about 08?Tell me about it, honey. It’s looking like Hillary, after all. Maya freaking Angelou! That’s gotta frost Oprah.Well, as a friend of mine pointed out, the absolute worst thing about Hillary will be dealing with the foamy-mouthed fruitcake right and their Drudge-peddled lies and inuendo. I’m so sick of that crap.

  3. >The worst part of CA is that D’s voted for Ahnold! He turned into a D two days before the election. I am not looking forward to the prospect of another Clinton in the WH! I don’t care for dynastys – Bush or Clinton.

  4. >The worst part of CA is that D’s voted for Ahnold! TWICE! What’s going on out there?

  5. >TWICE! What’s going on out there? It’s all pretty sad, but you can’t blame us for Bush in ’00 or ’04. (I get so mad when some kook, like HRC, says we should abolish the electoral college.) In the summer of 2000, companies like Reliant Energy and others started gaming the California electricity market to make obscene profits. It’s hard to remember their various subterfuges, but basically, they would close down plants and then offer power at inflated rates on so-called spot markets. While Governor Gray Davis, a competent, yet out-of-touch, public servant actually scrambled to prevent disaster, the propaganda machine, mostly in the form of PAC television spots successfully assigned blame to him for the rolling blackouts and even the high prices he was forced to negotiate. Enter congressman Darrel Issa with his dream of being elected governor. Well his recall plan worked like a charm, but the Republicans had another candidate they thought could win. Arnold is a good times party guy and people like him. I don’t hate him. Remember, it’s OK if you’re a Republican. Governor Davis was killing us with his stupid car tax. And he wasn’t controlling spending. I’ll never forget Arnold saying the car tax was “outrageous!” He promised to abolish it and I haven’t paid it since. The only attempt to bring Arnold down was to accuse him of groping women on the set. Arnold promised an investigation into his own behavior and that was that.Then we ran our state treasurer against him in the governor’s race. Talk about a non-starter, I had to force myself to vote Dem. He ran the weakest, most ineffectual campaign you could possibly imagine.I’m actually counting on Arnold to veto the mandatory spaying and neutering law now working it’s way through the California Senate. (See my blog!) Well the sun finally came up. See ya soon.
