Awkward. I wonder what they’re thinking?


USA Today: White House spokesman Jay Carney resigns

President Obama said Friday that White House press secretary Jay Carney will be stepping down from his job and be replaced by deputy Josh Earnest.

“It’s been an amazing experience,” Carney said after Obama’s announcement. “Just so fulfilling.”

Carney said he will stay on until at least mid-June.

Earnest described his appointment as a “genuine honor,” and said he looks forward to pressing the president’s “important and beneficial” agenda.

In praising his outgoing press secretary, Obama described Carney as one of his best friends and said he would continue to rely on him as an outside adviser.

Obama described Earnest, his incoming spokesman, as “honest and full of integrity” and “a straight shooter.” He said Earnest’s name “describes his demeanor.”

    There there Mr. Puppet Head. Now you just go with those nice Unicorns over there and they’ll fly you right out to the Shady Meadows Puppet Retirement Village. I’ll have Michelle send you a lovely basket weaving starter kit.

    You were the best damn liar I ever had. Even better than me. I am humbled and honored to have you lie your ass for me all these years. Thank you, Jay.
