Replacing Rahm.

Bloomberg is reporting that the White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is leaving to run for Mayor of Chicago. You knew that. The news here is that he may be leaving before the mid-term elections, although I'm not sure why that would be news, but apparently it is.

Four alarm Gasbag Alert!

Whenever the White House chief of staff leaves or is replaced, an army of pundits masses on the crested butte. All at once, they begin to proclaim as to the meaning of it all. It's a Mel Brooks movie, except its not funny. It's tedious and self-important and (mostly) wrong. Nevertheless, be warned. The Pundit Army is massing.
