Sycophant of the Month: November 2009

Total number of ProvGov press releases issued in November: 209 (+34 from October).

Total number with the phrase "Williams Government": 10 (+1 from October).

Sycophancy index: 4.8% (-0.3% from October).

Susan Sullivan got the game rolling on the second of the month, followed soon after by Danny Williams-Government himself. She didn't let the Big Guy spoil her groove, though, and she responded in kind on the 10th.

Things were looking good for a repeat performance for last month's champ.

Then things happened.

Tom Marshall happened. Not once, but twice on the thirteenth. Again a week later. And the week after that.

Later the same day, Jerome! put himself on the board, followed by a frenetic and blistering effort by Sullivan to get back on top of the game, scoring a rare threefer.

But, alas, threefers in this game score exactly the same as singles and doubles. Tom Hedderson closed out the month, making the final standings Marshall four to Sullivan's three.

Her performance on the 27th makes her the network announcers' unanimous choice as October's First Star, followed by Marshall for his solid showing, and Danny Williams-Government for Williams-Governmenting himself.

Susan Sullivan's monthly streak ends at, erm, one, though like Chrétien in '84, she's second in the month, but first in our hearts. Your November Sycophant of the Month, reclaiming his long-lost title. Congratulations, Tom!
