    Here's hoping Carney has a modicum of integrity and it was his decision riddled finally with enormous guilt.


    Tim-
    I remember when Carney was writing for Time and a time when I respected him and his work even though I frequently disagreed with his point of view. I'm hoping that he woke up a few mornings ago, looked in the mirror, looked at his wife and kids, and decided that he can be better than this.

    Just what sort of embrace is this? Definitely not a 'bro' hug.

(spokesman and consultant for men knee deep in their own poo, I detect a trend and skill set there)

    He is credited with inventing the term 'homicidal bomber' to replace suicide bomber- is that obfuscating enough for ya???

    He rolled over on Scooter Libby and claimed Scooter told him 'weeks' before the time Libby says a reporter told him about Plame being CIA (in a claim that Valerie sent her husband to look for a papertrail on yellowcake leaving Niger). So wouldn't you want a narc in the Obama White House?

    Perhaps Scott McClellan is more to your liking, his book on the White House during the Iraq war is full of double talk and shoulder shrugging- a perfect muddle mouth man. He says the White House didn't deliberately use out and out deception but instead used "political propaganda campaign"... WTF? He says BushII used self deception and was in constant campaign mode rather than making the best choices...

    Or how about Tony Snow...guest host for Oxcy Rush, O'Really and Fox 'news' show host... due to Josh Bolton demanding everyone sign on for the duration or go, Snow's tenure was short and cancer soon claimed him at age 52 IIRC... but he did the dance of a faltering Bush Administration amazingly well.
    Perhaps its the position that ruins people, rather than it attracting ruined people.

    I try to keep up with the news, but I didn't see a hint of this.
    It's been talked about for a while....maybe a month or so. Not a surprise.

    It's not on Drudge yet...

    And BTW, some press secretaries have done a good job.

    Fired? The guy never told the damned truth, which is precisely what is required of any press secretary in this Administration.
