    The Golden Legacy Package is indeed impressive and it's understood that anyone who has to ask the price obviously can't afford it.  But I'm wondering if there is an ala carte service or a MacPackage for state and county employees looking to retire in privacy.  Could this be a franchise opportunity?

    We considered the market but concluded that it wasn't profitable, state and municipal coffers being what they are these says.

    Impressively stealthy with a travel agency number and a non-existent domain!

    As part of the service, do I get to hobnob with fellow getawayers? I'd really like to ask Mr. Mubarak about his cat.

    Sorry, GeofhrisKhzn, unless you've subjugated a nation of at least 20 million citizens for 10 years or more, you are not eligible for our service.

    Have you considered dropping the 10 years to a minimum of 5 for those qualifying for a "genocide special", available to those who have eliminated 30% or more of their populations while in office?  

    While moral considerations may not be figuring prominently in your launch effort so far, even unusually evil despots are people, too, after all. 

    I thought you might throw in some "Well.  Don't let the people bastards get you down"-type language to perhaps intensify the emotional appeal for those despots feeling especially unappreciated, unloved, and perhaps a bit frazzled and desperate at the time they come upon this ad.  

    Brilliant. I wasn't clever enough.

    May I suggest a theme song, for your professional cleaners division ?


    Is this serious? It reads like it's serious. Nobody could be such an asshole to write such a blatant pitch for business at a time like this. I'm offended. 

    This adman/blogger is a terrible person.

    And hates Jesus.

    The Worlds full of them.  

    Like FISH and mosquitoes the farther North you go the bigger they are.

    A rescue package for despots?



    He came to mind third....after Bush and Cheney. Surprised

    Pah. When Bush-Cheney eliminate opposition parties and rule the nation with an iron fist for 30 years, then we'll talk.

    However as junior applicants, having just destroyed the U.S. middle class without firing a shot, they should receive free celebrity seating at all major sports events--which would be especially classy (even for a Bush) if provided at the same time that the serfs were denied the very bleacher seats they paid for with their hard earned money.    

    You forgot to include for a nominal fee, the crack security team is also capable of mounting land and aerial  reconnaissance to plan a winning scenario enabling you to take back your government with the use of our battle-proven force of para-military mercenaries highly capable of using land, air and naval forces with the lastest weapons technology not curentlyavailble on the market to capture key governmental facilities, neutralize any and all opposing military forces and securing vital industrial areas from sabotage during you comeback to power.

    Jeez, for a minute there I thought you were going to offer them chocolate, too.  No chocolate leaves the building while I'm around.  Remember that.

    There's chocolate?

    Did I say chocolate?

    Can you offer up some testimonials?  Did Ferdinand Marcos enjoy using your service?

    Genghis is not just the DACS® President, he's also a member!

    Trudeau today seems pertinent to this thread...http://www.doonesbury.com/strip although the dictator in that strip appears still to be in the denial phase, not yet persuaded of the need to take a hard look at his exit options...

    your wish is my command, genghis!  dagblog is added to skippy's roll!

    Thanks, skippy. Come by any time.

    T'aint funny McGee.

    Am I paranoid, or is this targeted at me?

    Am I paranoid, or is this targeted at me?

    And you are. . . .?

    So, Genghis, has the agency been contacted by a former dictator in need of assistance within the last hour or so?

    The phone is ringing off the hook, but all of our resources are now dedicated to my own resignation. It appears that sacking Wolfrum was not sufficient to appease the people.

    Wow--getting pretty ugly out there when the people who are trying to help the depressed and needy dictators are themselves having to seek refuge.  Is there an outfit that offers services to people who formerly worked for agencies such as yours?  Kind of a secondary market niche of sorts, perhaps?

    Time for (ahem) the women to take over.
