    Only in America is it considered "newsworthy" to see a partisan faux journalist being interviewed by other partisan faux journalists.

    Is it any wonder that politicians, journalists and lawyers, sometimes all three in one, are considered the most dishonest and least respected professions?

    So the heat was getting too hot for that 50 year old lying weasel and he had to get out of the kitchen. The press as of late were constantly catching him in lies and he would try to tap dance around them until he finally ran out of moves. How convenient for the WH. Now as more questions are raised about Benghazi or any other scandal the new press secretary can claim ignorance to avoid answering tough questions.

    They could call it "the morning carnival with Jay "the carney" Carney"

    I wonder if you spoke the same way of professional BS artist Ari Fleischer. My guess is no.

    Ari Fleishcher passed on stuff that wasn't truthful and he will be the first one to tell you that he should have been more of a skeptic over some of the stuff he was fed. He had some advice for the new press secretary. "Double-check inside the White House to make sure that anything and everything you say turns out to be truthful," he said. "Otherwise, you make a mistake or you get pounded on national TV — and it doesn't feel good."

    That's easy to say once you no longer have the job.

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