Uncle sent out notice that the Brady Campaign is looking for a new CEO. My application was rejected because it seems the Brady Campaign has no interest in a libertarian gun nut who specialized in making fun of anti-gun individuals and their constant parroting of lies. Still I found some rather humorous points in the requirements page:
The Brady Campaign has embraced building this grassroots strength as one of its most important priorities for the years ahead.
If the Brady Campaign has made establishing a grassroots movement against gun rights a priority I’d had to see how badly they’re failing at things they’re not concentrating on. You know what else is funny? This:
The organization is headquartered in Washington, D.C., with a staff of 25. There are 5 regional staff members in other parts of the country and the two entities have a combined annual budget of $5.3 million.
So the entire Brady Campaign headquarters staff is only 1/3 the size of the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) board of directors:
The NRA organization is governed by a large (typically 76 member) board of directors.
That made me giggle. What other hilarious gems lie within the job description? How about this:
The CEO will be a proven, results-oriented manager of people, teams, and organizations. S/He will provide the Brady Campaign with strategic leadership and bear ultimate responsibility for the organization’s programs, operations, and staff. The CEO will oversee effective program delivery and the executive team in its day-to-day management of the organization. S/he will be expected to create and execute a comprehensive strategy that utilizes a wide range of voices to deliver the organization’s messages.
So basically the new CEO will have to be accomplish the exact opposite of their last CEO. Good luck on that one guys. Though it’s good to see that the Brady Campaign understands the most important skill their next CEO will need:
While no one person will possess all of the qualities enumerated below, the ideal candidate will possess many of the following professional and personal characteristics:
A sense of humor.
Their new CEO will need that once S/He realizes the entire organization is one giant joke.
