Will Rummy stay or will he go now? If he stays there will be trouble. If he leaves it will be double.
Tommy Thompson left some time ago. Josh Bolten is Bush’s new chief of staff. Tony Snow has taken over Scott McClellan’s old post. The White House has a history of lot of trouble dealing with Helen Thomas and I doubt Snow will do any better. However, this video suggests that Stephen Colbert may well be the right man for the job.

I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world.
The performance was so powerful, it spawned the mega thanks site: Thank You Stephen Colbert.
