Sycophant of the Month: July 2009

Total number of ProvGov press releases issued in July: 144 (-30 from June).

Total number with the phrase "Williams Government": 7 (-7 from June).

Sycophancy index: 4.9% (-3.1% from June).

The curious decline in overall ProvGov output (the lowest since January), in WilliamsGovernment output (dropping below the teens for the first time since March, and the overall sycophancy level (slumping below 5% for the first time since February), couple with the startling lack of His Master's Voice on the raddio during much of July, only add up to one thing: August Is Polling Month.

On a go-backwards basis, Susan Sullivan put one in on the 6th, and Charlene Johnson on the 15th, showing that even in the absence of former superstar Joan Burke, the women still got game.

But their game was irrelevant: Trevor Taylor answered Sullivan on the 10th, and spent the last week of the month making it look easy, dropping in four uninterrupted points in a row between the 22nd and 31st.

For blowing the others out of the water, 5-1, Trevor Taylor earns his fourth consecutive monthly title. Congratulations!
