Working for the Feds?

So I applied to take the test for a job for USCIS (Citizenship and Immigration Services). I took the test, and sent off my resume and college transcript as requested. Of course I wonder about my prospect of getting hired, in light of the stuff I heard on PBS and NPR about the hiring and firing practices in government (specifically the Justice Department and the OPM). Then I hear about Hagen’s trouble at the Justice Department(marking another appearance by Monica Goodling)–and Hagen not having her contract renewed because of a rumour she is a lesbian. Get one line uttered in the NPR audio, referring being a lesbian:

“To some people, that’s worse than being a Democrat.”…I’m also reading Freethinkers by Susan Jacoby, and it seems I don’t have a snowball’s chance in Hell. Especially given this Adminstration. I wonder if I get on the list, and a Democrat takes the White House, my chances might improve. Of course, they might not.
