Hey, I can go to Barack Obama's transitional website, change.gov, and apply for a job in his administration!
I mean, shoot, as long as he's all about that "reaching across the aisle", I think I would make a find Ambassador to the Vatican City. I get to spend the next four years living in Rome, meeting with His Holiness, and all at the US government's expense, while avoiding living under Obama's administration!
I'm sending the resume today . . .
Update: I am getting several requests for positions within my cabinet.
I am still waiting word on whether the venerable Fr. John will be the personal chaplain (I may need to establish both an In-n-Out and a Fry's in the embassy). However, as I expect Mass to be said daily, it is only fair I get a second chaplain. Any takers?
I will need a Sacristan for the embassy chapel (if there ain't one, there will be) - Gem of the Ocean, are you in?
Kasia, you are my secretary. You and the Canuck can spend the first year of your blissful wedded life in the Eternal City - delightful!
St. Joe - American Liaison to Visiting Seminarians. There, I've just created the post.
Carlos - don't know you that well, but if you are willing to pick up dry cleaning, the job is yours.
Ack! I need in-house counsel! Well, then, I would like to see if Kit at By the Brook is up for the job, and I wonder if Fr. Ed Becker, Esq. wouldn't mind coming along too. Sure, you will need to be trained in Canonical Law, but if POTUS can get on-the-job training, so can my lawyers.
(Note to Fathers John and Ed - yes, I will pay for annual passes to Disneyland Paris!)
Other Positions Open:
I will need an official driver, which will require someone with nerves of steel to pilot a Lambroghini through the streets of Rome.
Not an embassy cook, but someone who will research where to eat out at night and make the reservations.
Tutor for the kids.
Someone to make excuses for me as to why I can't come to phone when POTUS calls.
