The Punching Bag Gives Up

Looks like we won’t be seeing Scott McClellan’s deer-in-the-headlights look for much longer, as he’s officially resigned from his post as the White House’s designated liar.

You can’t help but think that there was at least a part of him that was never entirely comfortable with having to get up in front of all those reporters and lie his ass off. Don’t get me wrong — he was great at sticking to Duh-bya’s prepackaged talking points (to the point of caricature), but he never looked happy about it. He knew he was lying, and he knew that everyone in the room also knew he was lying, but dammit, that was what he signed up for, and he was going to live up to his commitments. No matter how patently ludicrous he sounded in the process.

Really, I can’t wait to see what idiot they get to take over that job.
