Proud Mary…

… keep on earnin’!

With the latest resignation — they keep going up the food chain at North Carolina State; today it’s the chancellor — in the Mary Easley scandal, UD finds herself modifying her position vis-a-vis Mary, who, despite non-stop begging and bullying from a bunch of guys at NCSU desperate to get her out of her politically rigged, massively overpaid, totally corrupt job on campus, has refused to leave.  (Today we also discover, via just-released emails, that her husband — at the time the governor — got the job for her.)

UD now thinks Mary should stay.  Whenever a bunch of guys beat up on a woman it pisses me off.  Screw them.  They did all they could to get the little lady a big money do nothing gig at Patronage Acres and now they’re losing their jobs because they wrote emails to each other about what they were doing.  Mary did everything right according to the Corrupt Southern University System Handbook.  She kept her head down.  She didn’t write any emails.

She gets to stay.


Update: Mary just got canned.
Tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.
Floor strewn with dead bodies, up to and
including Gertrude.

    Didn’t someone link to this video here before?

    Where do you find this stuff…

  3. RJO Says:

    Everything I know I learned from Vjesci.

  4. Simon Spero Says:

    She was not "canned"; she was RIFfed- that is, she was let go because her job was found to be no longer neccessary. This means that she is eligible for unemployment immediately, but does not allow her to fund raise in IHOP men’s rooms.

  5. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Quite right, Simon. I stand corrected.

  6. theprofessor Says:

    Don’t worry, UD–Irksome and the boys will find something for her eventually.

  7. Jason Says:

    Y’know, this bugs me:

    "…according to the Corrupt Southern University System Handbook."

    First of all, it’s a cheap stereotype. Lazy writing.

    It’s also inaccurate: Raleigh is no more Southern than metro DC. (And NCSU isn’t a university system.) And corruption looks pretty much the same no matter where you go. (Didn’t the governor of New Jersey do the same thing for his lover a couple years back?)

    And finally, in Alabama it wouldn’t be a handbook, but a compendium.
