Rob Capehart, he of the 80 hour work week.
Anyway, one of the front runners for the Party Chairman is this guy Rob Capehart. He used to be Tax and Revenue Secretary under Cecil Underwood. I actually heard him give several speeches out in the community when he was Tax Secretary. Too bad it was the same damn speech each time. He would start it off talking about how he'd fly into Seattle's airport and see the big Boeing plant there, huge building, that would generate a ton of tax revenue, especially property tax revenue. Then right across the street was a little building, that was Microsoft. Which made infintely more money than Boeing, but because of technology advances didn't pay anywhere near the taxes as Boeing. Blah blah blah. This schmuck couldn't even be bothered to write a new speech for his craptastic public speaking engagements.
Anyway he left when Cecil got the boot, and became a professor at Marshall, so says their faculty webpage. He also used to be called Robin Capehart, but I guess he decided the "in" part made him seem too, something or other, and now he's just "Rob." Whatever his name, he's still a pathetic hack. I'd like someone to explain to me how someone who's supposed to be a fulltime professor at Marshall University, has the time to be galavanting around the state running the Republican Party? I'd love to see how many hours this jackass really works at Marshall for his full time teaching gig, which you and I pay for. I mean, how much time could he have really spent teaching last year in January and February, if he was out campaigning for the Republican nomination for Governor? Were you and I paying his salary while he was out kissing babies? And now, if he becomes Party Chair, will he give up his full time state job? I think he should, otherwise one of those jobs is going to be done half-assed, and I bet it won't be the one where he gets to be front and center the next time Bush comes to town. No, the one that will get the half-assed treatment, will be the one you and I are paying him for.
Most college professors work hard, giving a 40 hour work week, in class, office hours, and other institutional duties like committee meetings and advising students. And they sure as hell don't get rich doing it. However, it's jackasses like Capehart that hardly do any work at the College, and suck a fulltime paycheck from the state along with PEIA coverage for their whole family, while they are off running their own business making real money or running for political office and playing party politics like Capehart is doing, that give college professors a bad name as lazy, overpaid muckety mucks.
