Rumor has it that Jay Carney inherited his post as White House spokesman after Robert Gibbs only because Joe Izuzu wasn’t available. As some may remember, Gibbs resigned after having to defend White House policies for the first few years of the Obama administration, but decided to leave after being unable to control his rapidly shifting eyes and when the word ‘uh’ became 75% of his utterances. For those not familiar with the iconic car salesman Joe Izuzu of 70′s fame check here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Isuzu
Carney has been a worthy and amusing successor. After his gig is up at the White House, we expect Carney has a promising career working as a Cirque du Soleil acrobat where his amazing feats of contortion will amaze and amuse a paying public. For now, his contortions of the truth and the denial of the obvious will make him a classic Internet meme for the ages. This guy is either the most pathological liar of all time or just dumb. On any given day, it’s a toss up which is more likely. His denial of the most obvious of observations is Monty Python-esque. I refer to the classic Dead Parrot sketch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vuW6tQ0218
In politics as in sports, it’s one thing to be partisan, everyone wants their side to win; it’s quite another to deny an obvious reality. For Carney to deny that there are ANY merits to the numerous scandals embroiling the White House should be a strong hint that he may actually be a hand puppet. Consider that he is always standing behind a podium. Hmmm…there is a Sesame Street muppet look to him….
But it’s hard to slam old Jay, he’s just working with the material that’s given to him every morning. Nevertheless, I’d say there’s a fair chance that even Jay is being worn out from all the stress. He’s sold more whoppers than a kid working at Burger King. It won’t be long before he joins his predecessor Robert Gibbs in academia where the audiences are naive and reality is not an issue.
