September 11, 2009:

The new VP is merely the old Director twenty years further along.

Two mediocrities incapable of employment apart from highly politicized patrons.
Smug, self-satisfied, given to gloating.
Fully unaware that they owe their all to protectors who value their gullibility as much as their loyalty.

Eaten alive by narcissism: the kind who love to smell their own farts.
