William McKersie was named the new superintendent of Greenwich Public Schools on Wednesday. Here are 10 people who didn’t get the job:
Sen. John Kerry – Actually voted for MISA before he voted against it. Wearing flip flops to his interview was probably not the best decision.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal – Served as superintendent of Greenwich Public Schools before he served in Vietnam. Or was it after?
Linda McMahon – Insisting that the war on women be held at Madison Square Garden was odd, but it was her unabashed defense of Roger Clemens that was most concerning.
Mitt Romney – Time for Mitt to give the dog a break. Instead of strapping Seamus to the roof of his car, Gov. Malloy suggests that spot could be reserved for the teacher whose students perform the worst on standardized tests.
Bill Evans – Greenwich’s favorite weatherman would have had a tough time adjusting to the Board of Ed’s outrageous demand that in order to keep his job he had to be right at least once a year.
Gary Dell’Abate – Howard Stern’s right hand man would certainly have stirred things up. Everybody yelling Baba Booey at board meetings. Contaminated soil in the mailboxes of those who didn’t support him. The town’s dirty laundry aired out every morning on SiriusXM. Wait, where have I seen that before?
IB – Probably the most flawed of all the candidates, the knockout blow came when IB could not name one historical fact about America.
Regis Philbin – Who wants to be a superintendent? Not Regis.
John Calipari - If one student returned to Greenwich High School for his or her sophomore year, that would be considered a success.
Fred Wilpon – The Mets might increase attendance by moving from Citi Field to Greenwich High School. Wilpon could then sign high school students to play for his team, thus saving money. And honestly, could they be any worse than Jason Bay?
