Another Rat Deserting


by pessimist

"WAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I DIDN'T GET PROMOTED!"

That seems to be the gist of the excuse offered to explain why Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick is seeking a new job.

The Financial Times cited sources as saying Zoellick had been in talks with securities firms including Merrill Lynch & Co., while the Wall Street Journal also mentioned Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

Zoellick is seeking to exit after growing frustrated with the No. 2 job at the State Department, where he has overseen the Darfur peace negotiations for the Bush administration, the newspapers said.

In addition, he was disappointed after President George W. Bush failed to name him to succeed John Snow as Treasury Secretary, the reports said. Snow's departure has long been rumored, but he has so far confounded expectations by hanging on to the top economic post.

Right! I'm sure the fact that the FBI invited themselves to run through Congressional file cabinets, while Kenny-Boy is running away from an invite to the Federal Pen, and Fitzgerald invited Shooter to meet the Grand Jury, has absolutely NOTHING to do with his decision to seek employment elsewhere, does it?

[Fair Use Notice went on ahead of you, Zoellick!]
