Washington Guessing Game: Someone's Beautiful Launderette
A tipster sent us a link to the following ad on Careerbuilder.com. Emphasis added:
Political family requires laundress for cleaning and ironing an immense wardrobe. All items require extra care and attention.
At least three years of experience in a similar title is required for this position. Applicants must be able to furnish excellent references and prove ability to care for designer clothing. All applicants must have a strong command of the English language and be legal to work for any employer in the United States.
$40,000.00 - $50,000.00 / Year + Benefits
By all means, we urge any and all reckless speculation on the subject of which "political family" (1) has a lot of clothes, (2) a lot of designer clothes, (3) is terrified of not habla-ing the Inglés, (4) has a shitload of money to make their dirty clothes problem go away, and (5) is old-timey enough to throw around the world "laundress." We'd say Rudy Giuliani and his many pretty gowns, but he doesn't live in D.C.
By the way, we're seriously considering applying for this job. It pays a lot better than blogging, and it can't be any more demeaning.
