VACANT JOURNALISM JOB!  3:32 pm December 15, 2008

by Jim Newell

  • IMPORTANT LOCAL MEDIA NEWS: Time magazine’s Washington bureau chief Jay Carney — of the Newport Carneys? — is leaving his cushy job at the epicenter of conventional wisdom to serve America, as “assistant to the vice president and his director of communications.” Ha ha, good luck with that one, sucker. But now who will read Joe Klein his bedtime stories? [The Page]

Isn’t ‘Director of Communications for Joe Biden’ one of the places Dante described in Hell? I forget which circle.

Does this mean Biden will stop talking?

I kind of think Jay Carney is hot, but that being said, I always thought he was kind of a douche bag Republican. Surprise, surprise.

Maybe our Campbell Brown can has his job now. She should have all jobs if you know what I mean. Hey-yo!

Ew, I don’t carnys. They’re weird.

If he had been on the job, could he have persuaded Joe to rescue a poor, unloved shelter dog?

I love Joey Gaffe, but he is going to have to work hard to regain my respect. Time to head to downtown Wilmington and scoop up a whole litter of homeless kittens and their mother. Nothing less will do. Sorry, Joe, but that’s just the way it is.

Why is Campbell Brown peeping over the reply box and smiling at me?

Er, “don’t like”…

Doesn’t Carney write for Swampland with Ana Marie Cox? This would put Ken Layne about two degrees of separation away from our VP-elect. A frightening thought, indeed.

Poor guy is confused. Dick Cheney is the vice president, and Jay will be unemployed in a month.

[re=199168]DustBowlBlues[/re]: You said Campbell Brown and box. Heh heh.

Don’t stop the presses.

So, his wife is Campbell Brown wannabe Claire Shipman and he’s going to work for the federal government? Good luck with that.
