Robert Gibbs, the President Obama's Press Secretary and All Around Cleaner-Upper for the last three years, is stepping down soon. He announced his departure in January and now his tenure as the mouthpiece for the White House is coming to a close.

Major doff of the cap to my good friend and drinking buddy, Bill Andrew, who tossed off this idea while knocking back a cold one. Good on ya, sir.

Why do so many cartoons about this administration remind me of Sisyphus?

This one is the ultimate:

A "progressive" dung beetle is sentenced to an eternity of trying to push a giant turd ball to the "pinnacle" of societal acceptance, only to see the masses reject it & send it hurtling back to the trash-bin of history.

Absolutely fantastic, John & Bill.

lol T, that would make a hilarious punishment.


Poor Baghdad Bobby Gibbs, gets no respect. Or as my brother refers to him, "Barry's turd polisher".

John Cox:


The Sisyphus allusion was definitely a subtext. that's why the ground is not flat, but looks like a mountain side.

Your comment was a neat riff on the idea.


This is so dead on! Thanks Bill and John.

GF: Love the "Turd Polishing" comment too. Give your brother a high five.

Man, I hooted when I saw that.


Dr. Bob:

I feel a bit (but only a small bit) sorry for Mr. Gibbs, he had the impossible job of attempting to provide a passionate defense of the totally indefensable while also attempting to provide some appearance of credibility to a totally incredible administration.

Alas, he didn't fool anyone except the press, which already was in full Obamagasm.

Tom Wms.:

What amazed me is that Gibbs kept a straight face. I have to give him credit – he is a talented illusionist. He managed to create the illusion that he knew what he was doing and believed what he was saying. What's next, his memoirs?

Hi, this blog is very usefull and i like this blog so much.i'll share this blog on my facebook page.

Well I sincerely liked reading it. This information provided by you is very helpful Thank you.

If you are one of the fighters of the old school, their punching Fake Louis Vuitton Handbags that hang from the ceiling, swaying back and forth as they try to escape in every slot of popular, you see many high quality products for all of you in many shops gods.

In all matters of opinion, our adversaries are insane

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
