It’s amusement time! Oh there are so many things I could say right about now, but I think I will just let you take a moment to listen to Mark Penn talk about the democrats, the republicans, the tea parties, and Sarah Palin. He has actually figured out that the “party of no party” is currently the biggest voting demographic .
Mr. Penn’s ‘genius’ moment was receiving $6 Million of stimulus money to save 3 jobs at a firm lead by him:
The call for an audit came as news broke that a public relations firm headed by Mark Penn, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign strategist, received nearly $6 million in stimulus funds to save three jobs — a report Penn’s company called “fundamentally inaccurate.”
“I cannot fathom how Hillary Clinton’s pollster received $6 million to preserve just three jobs when that could sustain dozens of South Carolina’s families for life,” Wilson said.

A contract worth nearly $6 million in stimulus funds was awarded by the Obama adminstration to two firms run by Mark Penn, Hillary Clinton’s pollster in 2008.
Federal records show that a contract worth $5.97 million, part of the $787 billion stimulus Congress passed this year, helped preserve three jobs at Burson-Marsteller, the global public-relations and communications firm headed by Penn.
Burson-Marsteller won the contract to work on a public-relations campaign to advertise the national switch from analog to digital television. Nearly $2.8 million of the contract was awarded through a subcontract to Penn’s polling firm, Penn, Schoen & Berland, according to federal records.
Federal records also show that a former adviser to President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign received nearly $70,000 from that contract to help alert viewers in difficult-to-reach communities that their televisions would ssoon no longer receive broadcast signals.
