I have to wonder if the rats are jumping ship. And furthermore isn’t taking a job with them a lot like going to work for a buggy whip or slide-rule manufacture?

  1. I especially liked this bit;

    “The Director, Development maintains and expands successful existing programs…”

    Which of their existing programs do they consider successful?

    Maybe they could hold an annual event called the “Non Boomershoot” in which participants pay 200 dollars each to sit out in the cold and wind, pouting, empty handed, and look from 500m away at things that don’t do anything.

  2. This is an opportunity to change the direction of the Brady Campaign from one of anti-rights bigotry toward anti-criminal, anti-gang, pro-individual-rights activism. May I suggest whoever heads up the NRA Eddie Eagle or the NRA project Exile programs volunteer for this position?

  3. “Experience planning and implementing all types of fund raising campaigns”

    I wonder if they’ll have to work on commission?

  4. I also wonder about the whole:

    “The Director, Development maintains and expands successful existing programs…”

    Don’t subsantially all their funds come from Joyce?
