You would think that after she was publicly humiliated when an attempt to score cheap political points against the Bush administration exploded in her insolent face, Secretary "Sledgehammer" Bysiewicz would gave given up the issue.
Apparently she's not done embarassing herself on this one. I guess that's no surprise. She is still claiming, despite being roundly refuted on all sides, that there is an obstruction to her registering veterans to vote at U.S. Veterans Affairs facilities.
Bysiewicz continues to demonstrate either incredible ignorance and incompetence, or a willful inability to just take lumps when she was wrong by continuing to try to make herself right. Seems like a strong blend of both to me.
When it was revealed that thousands of dead people were recorded as having voted, she was caught off guard and without answers. When it comes to doing things that have to do with her primary job as Secretary of State, she is completely out of her depth and detached from whatever is happening.
But if it is a cheap photo-op, giving her an opportunity to jump up and down over Dick Blumenthal's shoulder at a press conference on Broadwater, or an excuse to exploit elderly wheelchair-bound veterans, she's all over it.
Media outlets have been extremely generous in assigning this woman a "tier two" status in the eventual Democratic gubernatorial sweepstakes for 2010. When it comes to getting her job done, she doesn't know which of her asses to put the hat on.
