Sycophant of the Month: September 2010

Total number of ProvGov press releases issued in September: 220 (+33 from August).

Total number with the phrase "Williams Government": 9 (-5 from August).

Sycophancy index: 4.1% (-3.4% from August).

Dilution, thy name is Igor. With a very large proportion of ITAR-DAN’s output in September being devoted to public and media advisories related to the historic weather disaster, it’s remarkable that the overall number only increased by 33. Either The Provincial Williams Government is running out of things to announce, or they have deferred the Happy News until closer to CRA’s field dates in November, or both.

Yeah, both.

Felix Collins started the month right, putting one in on the first to get things going early. But last month’s champ Kennedy wasn’t about to let anyone get to close to his trophy, and answered his Justice portfolio successor right away.

Danny Williams-Government himself muscled Kennedy away from the net to personally announce Happy Hospital Money on the ninth, followed right after by Schroedinger’s Minister

Felix Collins took a lead the next day, only to end up sharing it almost immediately, when His Premierosity, with nothing better to do, delivered more Hospital Happiness, this time in Labrador West.

Former perennial ex-officio contender Hedderson, who has lately fallen on hard luck, got himself on the board on the 13th.

And then it started to blow. And rain.

It would be another eleven days before anyone had the energy to resume the game, which Jerome Kennedy did, making it a three-way tie, on the auspicious date of September 24th.

And five days later, Kennedy would seal the deal, taking the lead, and taking the prize. Your September Sycophant of the Month, for the third month running, Jerome Kennedy!

The "early bird" gets the worm or trophy in this case .
