Added DiffLines:

* KickedUpstairs: In Season 5, he's recruited to run for an open seat in the House of Representatives by the Meyer administration and his uncle Jeff Kane, a prominent New Hampshire political figure who actually wants the seat to go to his son Ezra, who is deployed in Afghanistan. Jonah is described as being so ineffectual that he'll be easy to replace when Ezra comes home, but as Jonah himself points out, he's very, very good at hanging onto positions he's never really deserved.
--> '''Jonah''': I went to the White House on a three-month placement and stayed for four years! I'm a MRSA infection! ''You don't get rid of Jonah Ryan!''

* UltimateJobSecurity: Mike is in charge of Selina's PR, so his incompetence turns a great many of her mistakes into fullblown scandals. However, Selina keeps him on despite his incompetence. [[spoiler:Subverted in Season 5, where Selina decides to find a new Press Secretary to replace Mike, but she loses her bid for re-election before anything comes of it.]]



* TheDogBitesBack: In Season 5, Jonah gets sick of Selina bossing him around and decides to campaign on an anti-Meyer platform. It works wonders for his polling, which suits Selina just fine.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
** Dan tears into him when he finds out Jonah's position is so unimportant he cannot be used for information.
** Jonah gives an epic denouncement against Teddy in Season 5, calling people like him (i.e. sexual harassers) soulless. Unfortunately for Jonah, Bill Erickson's creative camera work makes it look like Jonah's rant was directed at a woman with Down's Syndrome.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Dan tears into him when he finds out Jonah's position is so unimportant he cannot be used for information.
