    Just over the wires. He says he's going to spend more time lying to his family.

    WH Senior Staff shakeup

    McClellan is out as Press Secretary. Rove loses his policy portfolio (but not his title/position). Joel Kaplan promoted to Deputy Chief of Staff.

    I'm just glad the Bush administration is getting to the root of their problems and working to solve them.

    Rove can now go back to drowning kittens in the bathtub.

    Details are shaky, but apparently everything he had:

    http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/04/19/D8H33SG00.html

    I read this as Rove continuing on as Deputy CoS without portfolio. Hagin keeps the admin/nat'l security stuff. And Kaplan gets the domestic policy stuff from Rove.

    It would seem that Rove goes back to being the chief political adviser only, but retains the Deputy CoS title.

    Probably someone who's a better liar than McClellan. Or someone who's a "fresher" liar. I miss Ari!

    All he has to do is tell the same lie he told before.

    "The war is going well. The war is going well"


    That Tony Snow looks like a shrunken, Baptist Bill Walton.

    I'd dance a jig, but as the saying goes, "new lying ass clown, same as the old lying ass clown."

    Re: WH Senior Staff shakeup

    I don't buy that Rove is losing an ounce of power/influence in this "shakeup." the only reason his name is on the list is to make it appear more credible.

    Re: WH Senior Staff shakeup

    I think it's possible that Rove has been released so that he may hitch his wagon to the next Republican front-runner for 2008.

    That, and so he can call anyone not supporting the president terrorist-weasles and not be related to the administration.

    Rove is now working on the mid term election; get ready for red alerts, swift boating, illegitimate kid stories,.... I better go look for my duct tape and kool aid.

    I suppose it is important to W. If they lose the midterms he and Cheney will probably be tried for war crimes.

    Presidential Press Secretary has to be one of the worst jobs in Politics.
