BREAKING: “Jay Carney stepping down as White House press secretary, Josh Earnest to take over job”
I don’t think it’s that he has any shame, or that he’s tired of endlessly spinning. I think rather it’s that he’s emptied his quiver of lying tropes which in turn makes him sound stale; and standing there in front of your former colleagues with nothing but your castrated bits to show for your years of acting the public stooge can be offputting. They’re mean little buggers, these press climbers, particularly once they’ve smelled blood in the water. And of course, every last one of them wants your job.
Because like communism, they each think it just hasn’t been done right yet, and they have that special snowflake quality to fix all that.
