'Government Doesn't Suck' Rally on Saturday

Government workers are "a lot of cool cats"....

The web-savvy Gen-Xer government employees will march alongside Jon Stewart's rally on Saturday, reports Washington Post, who happens to have a close tie with these government workers in promoting this fine idea of "Government Doesn't Suck".

I guess they are not aware that their salaries and benefits (which are twice those of the private sector workers) are paid by taxpayers, and just like Illinois state government workers who marched to demand tax increase so that they would retain their jobs and benefits, they don't seem to know when to keep quiet.

'Government Doesn't Suck' march planned (Ed O'Keefe, 10/25/2010 Washington Post)

Amid growing dissatisfaction with federal employees, a group of younger, web-savvy feds are planning to march on Saturday in defense of their coworkers on the sidelines of Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity."

Organizers of the "Government Doesn't Suck March" (their choice of words, not ours) were inspired in part by last week's Washington Post poll that revealed widespread negative perceptions of federal workers.

"We hear it day in and day out: the government sucks, federal employees are lazy and their positions are redundant," said march organizer Steve Ressler, founder of GovLoop, a social networking Web site for public servants.

"It's time to turn the tables and remind the world that government employees just happen to be people -- people that don't suck," Ressler said in a message sent to The Federal Eye on Sunday announcing the march. Government workers "are a lot of cool cats" who work hard, listen to good music and watch Stewart's "The Daily Show," "but that's all after they've spent a whole day keeping the country running," he said.

Simply amazing.

(So all the government workers are Democrats?)

The Washington Post maintains a content partnership with GovLoop as part of our coverage of the federal government.

At the end of the article, there is a list of the latest articles about varioius government agencies that Washington Post and other major news outlets (such as WSJ and NY Times) have published. Oh wait, "content partnership"... So, were these articles actually written by these web-savvy federal government employees, and MSM outlets were simply their conduits?

No, you don't say...

(Goebbels would be proud.)
