Chris Cillizza reports in The Fix: “In a widely expected move, Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) press department resigned en masse today.”
Did you get that? His entire press department resigned.
That means there’s no one to, say, field questions (and deliver spin) about what services Stevens, Reed, Curcio & Potholm are providing to him, for instance, should any enterprising reporter want to get all over that story.
His erstwhile communications director’s replacement is rumored to be his current New Hampshire press maven, Jill Hazelbaker, who was exposed as a sockpuppeteer and a liar while working as Republican Tom Kean, Jr’s. press secretary, using fake identities not only to defend the candidate for whom she worked but her own proficiency as his employee—and then repeatedly lying about doing it, even when she’d been totally busted.
McCain’s campaign just keeps getting awesomer and awesomer.
In fact, that campaign has been so HOTT for so long, that I’m pretty sure it’s time to stick a fork in that turkey. Cuz it’s done.
