Ricky's back!

We all remember Little Ricky Diaz, the McCrony campaign hack who was rewarded with an $85,000 per year job that was not advertised and for which he was not qualified.

Being an opportunist, Ricky used that temporary gig as a springboard to go to Washington and be a communications hack for a Republican "strategy" firm.

But now Ricky's back in North Carolina! This time as a Republican party communications hack.

Ricky Diaz, a former McCrory aide whose $85,000 salary drew scrutiny in 2013, is returning to North Carolina as senior communications adviser for the N.C. Republican Party.

“I have a responsibility to recruit top talent to the state party,” GOP executive director Todd Poole said in a statement Friday. “Ricky’s extensive political, policy and campaign experience in addition to his deep knowledge of the state will be invaluable as we prepare to build on the gains made during the 2014 election.”

Not to mention Ricky's high-level McCronies like Pat and Aldona, who just adore him!



When you need a spokesman

It's always best to get one flanked by flags and a cute baby. It's a bonus if you can get him to stand in front of a ridiculous Kindergarten-style logo that reminds people that he and his boss are unqualified McCronies. Yeah, you snagged a real winner, Todd Poole.
