Sycophant of the Month: May 2008

Stunning upset!!!!

Total number of ProvGov press releases issued in May 2008: 207 (+23 from April)

Total number with the phrase "Williams Government": 21 (-6)

Sycophancy index: 10.1% (-4.6%)

Charlene Johnson and Paul Oram, almost unbelievably, score their first major-league goals (one each) as lead ministers in a Williams Government press release, even though they have done yeoman's sycophancy work on the open line shows.

Jerome Kennedy and John Hickey also put one on the board apiece.

Premier Danny Williams-Government puts in two of his own, and, in an almost painful-to-watch slump, so does Joan Burke. Don't feel too badly for the outgoing champ, though; she's been duly rewarded.

Ross Wiseman almost doubles his career point total with three in May 2008 alone.

But they are all outshot, in spectacular fashion, by the May champion. Ten of the 21 goals scored for the month, nearly half the monthly total, were put in by May's Sycophant of the Month, the one, the only, the woman with her fingers wrapped tightly around the highways purse-strings, at least most of the time, Dianne Whalen!

Congratulations, Dianne!
