The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

More Tuttle scuttlebutt

The lovely and talented Amanda Congdon makes fun of Jerry Taylor:

Is the city manager a true dolt, or is this some kind of thinly-veiled publicity stunt?

She reads a couple of excerpts from the Gospel According to Jerry, and then:

Regardless of his intentions, what a nutjob, right? Man. I have half a mind to send my Virtual Wingman on his ass.

Waste of time, darlin'; the man responds to email like a dead fish responds to ultraviolet light. (No movement, per se, but the, um, aroma increments.)

As someone who doesn't know about Jerry Taylor at all, seems to me that while Taylor comes across as clueless regarding server maintenance, Johnny Hughes epitomizes the know-it-all propellerhead programmer disdainful of the non-tech savvy.

Amanda Congdon? Definitely an acquired taste. She has apparently copied the Liz Spiers snarky Gawker thing. I've seen a few of her reports and while I applaud her for doing it everyday I don't know who's worse, her or John Stewart. That Colbert guy is coming up fast though.

You'll see Amanda on TV soon, she's one with the zeitgeist.

I admit, I tend toward the propeller-headed side of the spectrum myself.

As for Amanda, well, we're on opposite sides politically for the most part, but sheesh, at least she's prettier than Colbert. :)
