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.) Posted at 6:27 PM to PEBKAC , Soonerland
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. :)
