Sycophant of the Month: August 2008
Total number of ProvGov press releases issued in August: 129 (-12 from July)

Sycophancy index: 3.1% (-0.5% from July)
August, like July, had two months with no WilliamsGovernment releases at all.
Last month's winner, Dave Denine, was slow off the mark. The first WilliamsGovernment release of the month was issued by none other than Danny Williams-Government himself, on August 4th. But that just made Denine crazy. He got on the board on the 7th, although it was a glance off Terry Loder's stick, and scored a pair on the 22nd — the first two-day pair by a single cabinet minister since Dianne Whalen back on May 7th.
No one else made it onto the big board, so after last month's tie, even after discounting for the Loder freak play, the August Sycophant of the Month: Dave Denine.
Honourary Mention for fluffing himself: Danny Williams-Government.
