    He made it out alive. Congratulations.

    In a profession filled with douches, he always seemed the douchiest.

    Really? I never got that from him. There have been plenty of good and bad from either side, but he never bothered me.

    Agreed. He did Obama no favors in how The White House has been perceived.

    Came across as a smarmy d-bag.

    I realize it's a brutal job, but he always seemed more smug and combative than his predecessors from both parties.

    Seems like Jonathan Karl may have pushed Carney over the edge yesterday on
    VA/ Shinseki

    Shouldn't this be on the jobs board?

    That made me laugh out loud.

    Too bad Moddy just started a new gig. He would make a great
    press secretary. I mean that sincerely. He just has a way of
    handling things.

    Don't you mean the "jobs nobody in their right mind would touch" board?

    Should have never been hired -- or fired after 90 days.

    From the beginning O's administration was battling a perception of being not-ready-for-prime-time twerps advanced beyond their capabilities. Probably only Karl Rove, or maybe Cheney, among other major political personalities so perfectly fit the stereotypical image of the movement's worst enemies.

    That is, if the Right-Wing Screech Machine called central casting and asked for a dippy, dweeby, dorkboy to emphasize the in-over-their-heads angle of attack, they would have gotten somebody who looked and sounded exactly like Jay Carney.

    Lord, it would have been such fun had someone like, say, you been given that gig ... Sheesh, given the revolution that would have followed, what in the name of all that's holy would the 69th Amendment have covered?
