From Stranger at Blah3 regarding another Bush loyalist biting the dust. Sadly, however, the Bushies always have more liars to come to their aid.
You gotta wonder why a hard-core Kool Aid drinker like Bartlett is jumping ship.Indeed!
Dan Bartlett, one of President Bush's most trusted advisers and his longest-serving aide, said Friday he is resigning to begin a career outside of government.I guess even a world-class prevaricator like Bartlett has limits when it comes to defending the indefensible.
[...] As counselor to the president, Bartlett has been at the center of White House decision-making, stepping into the public eye in times of trouble to defend Bush on everything from the unpopular war in Iraq to the government's bungled response to Hurricane Katrina and the Republicans' loss of Congress.
