Hopefully they will pay him enough that it won’t be worth his while to ever work for a Democrat again. Well, unless Andrew Cuomo wanted to hire him to run his 2016 primary campaign…

    Ballmer and Penn. That much aggressive ignorance in one place could cause a disturbance in the Force, young Luke.

      losgatosca, that was pretty much the point i was going to make.

      ballmer continues to pile up points towards securing the worst ceo in history crown, and presumably, the founders still support him. hiring mark penn is pretty much the apotheosis of what has turned the evil empire into an, wheezing, also-ran….

    Google’s victory will come from running up big wins in the caucuses.

  3. Bill Murray says:

    if there is one thing all left, liberals and progressives should agree on, it is that Mark Penn is bad in a not good way, not in a Richard Roundtree in Shaft sort of way

  4. L.M. says:

    Mark Penn continues to believe that it’s still 1992.

    Surely they will be bringing Bob Shrum on board at some point?

  6. On the other hand, I read that Google just hired Ray Kurzweil, so I’m not convinced this isn’t a race to the bottom.

      There’s a thin line between being crazy and a genius!

      It’s not like they made him CEO, though Engineering Manager is kind of an important-sound title.

      I’m skeptical he has much power in the company, and I see major upside to having someone throwing around off-the-wall ideas till one sticks in Google’s business mode.

    Penn wasn’t already running the campaign for Windows 8?

    • Cody says:

      So? Honestly, this is a problem. It’s not Google’s problem.

      It’s the government’s problem for being their patsy. They gotta man up and make a better tax structure so companies don’t just dodge it (or pay someone off to make a loophole).

  8. Cody says:

    I think the whole “Scroogle” thing is pretty stupid.

    Microsoft is just upset Google implemented this faster than Microsoft could. It’s not like people don’t pay Microsoft to show up highlighted in their shopping results.
