Buh Bye, Don't Let The Screen Door Hit You

Well that took less than the two weeks I thought it would, ooh couldn't we just change the Decider for one who can decide correctly and quit replacing the henchman. Where exactly is Baghdad Bob these days, with a new job opening available and he meets all of the qualifications?
McClellan Out as White House Press Secretary: "ppearing with Bush on the White House South Lawn just before the president boarded a helicopter at the start a trip to Alabama, McClellan, who has parried especially fiercefully with reporters on Iraq and on intelligence issues, told Bush: 'I have given it my all sir and I have given you my all sir, and I will continue to do so as we transition to a new press secretary.'

Bush said McClellan had 'a challenging assignment.'

'I thought he handled his assignment with class, integrity,' the president said. 'It's going to be hard to replace Scott, but nevertheless he made the decision and I accepted it. One of these days, he and I are going to be rocking in chairs in Texas and talking about the good old days.'"
Wonder how more "heckuva job" stories we have coming.

Ooh, ooh, Rovian undertones along with it?
Also, a senior administration official revealed another move in the ongoing shakeup of Bush’s staff, saying Rove, the president's longtime confidant and adviser, is giving up oversight of policy development to focus more on politics with the approach of the fall midterm elections.

Just over a year ago, Rove was promoted to deputy chief of staff in charge of most White House policy coordination. That new portfolio came on top of his title as senior adviser and role of chief policy aide to Bush.

But now, the job of deputy chief of staff for policy is being given to Joel Kaplan, now the White House’s deputy budget director, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the president had not yet made the announcement.

The move signals a possibly broad effort to rearrange and reinvigorate Bush’s staff by new chief of staff Joshua Bolten. Bolten moved into his position last week; Kaplan was his No. 2 person at the Office of Management and Budget.
This could be a very interesting month, other than that tax thing and all. Suppose enough people protested paying their taxes? Nah, that couldn't be it. Incompetence and malfeasance spring to mind.
