(I)t is with great pleasure that I toss my hat into the ring for the position of Director of Communications for Goldman Sachs. Not only do I have the requisite skill set to help rehabilitate the image of the 100+ year old firm – media savvy, legal smarts, netizen, with just a dollop of snark – but I believe I can help you move gracefully into the new century.


Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.


  1. I have been recently told by my spiritual advisors that you might be seeking an apprentice assistant on a temp basis.  From my record as we discussed previously I have indicated my wish to ride the Apocalyptic horse or be one of the witnesses portrayed in the Biblical book of Revelation.  At one time the whole breathing fire at the enemies of God impressed me but I have grown so much since then.  My interests now lie in that seperation of good vs sociopathic souls as you well know.
