Jay Carney was named the new WH Press Secretary, and D-Day has some thoughts. The only thing I could remember off the top of my head was that he was a beltway CW type, but I do remember that during the campaign, John McCain just exploded on Carney for really no reason whatsoever (other than the fact that McCain is a cranky hothead asshole whose memory is shot and who gets pissed off when people notice him doing one thing and saying another):
I guess the strategy is to give the beltway insiders in the WH press room a beltway insider to deal with. D-Day has some interesting points, but I honestly don’t remember the last time any news was broken by a Press Secretary. Pretty much the only thing that happens when the press secretary speaks is one side or the other gets livid about something they were already mad about.
