Nation of wimps..

This just hit me from Memeorandum over there on the right. It's a story about Meg Whitman pushing some employee when she was CEO at eBay because she was pissed that the employee was not doing the job that he should.


Here's the 4-1-1:

In June 2007, an eBay employee claimed that Ms. Whitman became angry and forcefully pushed her in an executive conference room at eBay’s headquarters, according to multiple former eBay employees with knowledge of the incident. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the matter was delicate and was deemed to be strictly confidential.

The employee, Young Mi Kim, was preparing Ms. Whitman for a news media interview that day. Ms. Kim, who was not injured in the incident, hired a lawyer and threatened a lawsuit, but the dispute was resolved under the supervision of a private mediator.

Let's see now, the employee is a sluggo, pisses off the boss, gets pushed, and sues.

Again, predictable.

C'mon, fercrissakes, she's also a woman! And she's your boss! I have gotten into several shoving matches with bosses, co-workers, and strangers but, in all cases, don't go running to my attorney in a fit of tears. Oh, by the way, the little wuss-ette got a settlement from Whitman and this story was probably run so as to cast Meg in a bad light -- rotten bully, unreasonable boss and all that.

On the other side of the coin, I just figured out that I will be working for Whitman for Governor out here as well. I mean, any woman who has the stones, figuratively speaking of course, to push some employee around because the person is a lazy, worthless idiot, then she'll probably make a great governor.

Certainly better than the girly-man with the steroid-shriveled genitalia we got in Sacramento now. I'd sure as hell like to see Meg slap those idiots in the state legislature around a bit. Worth the price of admission and all that.

You go, girl!
