Price of Politics, Etc.: Director Gipp

Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics, Etc.

Decorah Republican State Rep. Chuck Gipp now has a new title:
Director. Gipp finished up his nine-term career in the legislature
this spring. He seemed well-liked with his fellow Republicans, and for
what it's worth, he is well-respected in the media. Current Minority
Leader Chris Rants is usually a pretty easy soundbite. Let's just say,
he likes to speak his mind, which quite frankly, is nice for us in TV.
We need a guy who can express himself with a little emotion from time
to time. No doubt Gipp knew the issues when he was House Majority
Leader, but he was a far different soundbite than Rants. He didn't get
all riled up too easily. We had to work for a passionate soundbite
from him. Today, Gipp began his new job as Director of the Division of
Soil Conservation. It's a full-time gig that pays 85k.
