Simple Scotty's out.

From CNN.com: White House shake-up touches McClellan
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A shake-up in President Bush's administration widened Wednesday as White House press secretary Scott McClellan announced his resignation.

News of McClellan's exit comes shortly after the departure of longtime White House chief of staff Andrew Card and amid calls by retired U.S. generals for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

During an appearance on the South Lawn with Bush, McClellan announced his departure after two years as press secretary saying his departure was right during a "time of transition."

Translation from Simple Scotty's Lie-ese: "The ship's sinking, and I'm following my fellow rats!"

I'm glad to see the back of Simple Scotty. The guy's a flat-out liar, and he's done nothing BUT lie, and when he couldn't lie, he got all indignant and acted like being asked questions was some sort of high offense to his sensibilities. Hello?! Moron?! That's yer JOB! Take the questions and answer like you've got some gray matter!

I think the following is apropos:

We know that we can't take no more
It ain't no lie,
We wanna see you out that door
Scotty, bye, bye, bye...
Bye Bye
Don't wanna be a fool for you
Just another player in your game for two
We all hate you and it ain't no lie,
Scotty Bye, bye, bye...
Bye Bye
Don't really wanna make it tough,
We just wanna tell you that we've had enough
You're just crazy,
And that ain't no lie,
Scotty, bye, bye, bye

And would you believe I cracked that joke TEN SECONDS before Randi Rhodes did on the XM feed?
