A Tell Tale Quote

From an article in the Daily Toreador, the Texas Tech University news, we have a story about Alberto Gonzalez, the disgraced and slipshod former U.S. Attorney General. Along with the feel good stuff we have this:

Gonzales said he wants to encourage Tech students to have high aspirations but to realize that success doesn’t come overnight.

“Dream big but be patient,” he said. “You never know when the next George W. Bush is going to come along and give you a once in a lifetime opportunity like he gave me, but you have to be patient.”

Hmm, because doing it on your own is so...difficult?

Small world moment. Gonzalez was hired by Kent Hance, chancellor of the Texas Tech University System in Lubbock, Texas. Hance, formerly a Democratic Party member who switched to the Republican party in 1985, is the only person to have defeated George W. Bush when he ran for congress in 1978. It looks like networking has really paid off for Mr Gonzalez.

Thanks for the laugh... and the sigh... and the grr (not necessarily in that order).
