We've not even gone through our first 100 days, and already, we've got a "long knife" victim. Ellen Moran, who was White House Communications Director submitted her resignation today to go to work as Gary Locke's chief of staff. I don't know who Gary Locke is, but he's a getting a great gal.
The untold story here is that Ellie just couldn't work with Gibbsy, who Big Guy, when he's not reading me, listens to on media matters. Gibbsy really didn't like her, and was pretty quick about stabbing her in the back for some of the ongoing communications gaffes we've had, so those knives Big Guy got today came in pretty handy!
Also, Big Guy tends to like to hang with us guys, and it's tough for a woman to be around with all the towel snapping that goes on here in the Oval. And it only gets worse when Rahm refuses to put that towel back on.
