Sometimes people do the silliest things. It appears that Bunnatine Greenhouse, the Principal Assistant Responsible for Contracting (PARC) in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has had the audacity to uhm DO HER JOB. Greenhouse has recently asked how Halliburton has gotten such a giant piece of the war-profiteering pie without competitive bidding. In recognition of her efforts, Greenhouse, an overqualified employees with exemplary job performance up until now, has suddenly been demoted. I guess the suggestion that some friends of the vice-president should have to endure the rigors of free-market competition is a highly inappropriate remark in an administration that champions the virtues of free-trade and democratic openness.
