Hey Rep. Clyburn, we’ll make you assistant, to the assistant manager

To ensure the new leadership of the minority party in Washington does not look racist, they have created a new, unnamed position with unknown responsibilities for South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.).

Clyburn is currently the majority whip in the House, but after the election shake-up, many Democrats wanted to shake things up internally as well. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) clearly had the votes to bounce Clyburn from the whip position, but many assume that “would not look good.” Over the weekend, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested a new position within the soon-to-be minority leadership.

Assistant to the assistant manager.

So they make up a job that has absolutely no responsibilities that will no doubt include a car, driver, larger office, bigger staff, and more prestige for what?

Answer the question on your own. From Fox News, with at tip to Gateway Pundit.

House Democrats averted a messy leadership struggle, clearing the way for Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer to become second in command of their new minority without a challenge from South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn.

Under an arrangement worked out in private, officials said late Friday that Clyburn would instead receive a new position, title unknown and duties undescribed, explicitly labeled the third-ranking post in leadership.

    This just goes to show, that the democrat's learned nothing from the Nov 2nd elections. Instead of concerning themselves with the Amaerican people's interests. They're bickering about "who get the driver and other special perks". Completely out of Touch!! I'm Doubling Down on 2012, we need to get more people like the Freshmen Class 0f 2010 in those available seats!! Especially the Presidental one!

    The big tent Democrats strike again!  Yes, Mr. Clyburn, you can have a "leadership" position, just so long as you don't get uppity and complain about life on the Democrat plantation.  Sounds like a token position to me.  Or is called a hack position?


    Whatever the position, it appears that it is in the far back of the Democrat bus, where they expected to stuff Republicans, according to Fearless Leader.
