White House Press Secretary Fired for Lying?

My headline is a joke – as anyone who peruses this blog would recognize.  Misleading the American people is the most important part of the White House press secretary’s job description.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney resigned today.  Has  anyone keep track of the number of 3-star and 4-star howlers he told defending Obama?

I exploited his bosh for plenty of articles – quoting Carney often provided comic relief because his assertions were so absurd.

    Press Secretaries only get fired for not lying.
    I can’t recall any of them ever being fired – even the ones that didn’t lie very well.

    As long as they didn’t burst out laughing at the BS they were shoveling, they kept their jobs.

    Some papers have been running some “Classic Doonesbury” strips from the early-mid 1970s. I think I saw a great one about the travails of Nixon’s press secretary(ies?) during Watergate.
