The envelope please…
The “Worst Boss of the Year” award for 2007 goes to…
Sen. Jim “Thinskin” Webb (D-WashPo)!!!
Yes, Sen. Thinskin, you are this year’s Worst Boss of the Year!!! No one has come close nor do we expect anyone to reach the heights that you have in recent days, so we are just foregoing the next nine months of 2007 and declaring you the winner now!!!
You managed to hang your Executive Assistant, Phillip Thompson, out to dry, landing him in jail for 28 hours, on his 45th birthday no less — away from his wife and two kids, because you didn’t keep track of where your loaded weapon was, ignoring the most basic gun safety rules. Thompson then reappeared in public in D.C. Superior Court in leg irons represented by a “fancy Virginia lawyer” who is so unfamiliar with the D.C. court house that he got Thompson lost on his way out. That doesn’t bode well for his skill in manuevering through the subtleties of the D.C. court. Meanwhile, you engage in the most blatant CYA anyone has seen in recent memory, failing to take responsibility for your own blatant stupidity.
Congratulations, Sen. Thinskin, for this dubious distinction and condolences to Mr. Thompson and the rest of your employees. Good luck to them. They’re going to need it working for you.
