No More Katherine Harris? How About Shelley Sekula-Gibbs?

I’™ve noticed we’™ve got a deficit lately. We’™ve lost a bunch of Republicans who were very much fun to laugh at and ridicule. Tom DeLay, Rick Santorum, Conrad Burns, Katherine Harris. Sure, it isn’™t like there is a paucity of venality or anything, but the jokes about John Cornyn aren’™t quite as good. So, it is a good thing that Shelley Sekula-Gibbs goes a ways to fill the void.

Rumors flew on Capitol Hill and in Texas political circles as people tried to guess what could have prompted seven veteran congressional aides to walk out en masse just days after their service to Sekula-Gibbs began.

Was it any displeasure or unrealistic expectations from the congresswoman about President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney not attending a reception she hosted Tuesday or the fact that she didn’™t get invited to a White House dinner for freshmen joining Congress in January? Disagreements with staff over how well she was briefed so she could cast her first votes Monday night, shortly after taking the oath of office from Speaker Dennis Hastert? Or a request that her staff draft an immigration bill even before she’™d taken office so she could introduce it on her first day?

Alas, Ms. Shelley Sekula-Gibbs will not be serving beyond January, so take your pot shots at her now whaile she is still serving.
