“President Obama in a surprise announcement Friday said White House press secretary Jay Carney was stepping down and that his deputy, Josh Earnest, would take over the post.”  Okayyyy.  But if Jay Carney was an apt handle for Obama’s former carnival-barker how rich is the moniker Josh and Earnest?  Sounds like the Three Stooge’s law firm.  How long before the Press Corps starts making split personality jokes?  Indeed it’s the greatest name for a Washington flack since Sly Wordly of Wilbur Mills fame.
