White House Social Secretary Calls it Quits

This is not that much of a surprise. In a statement, the Obama's said:

"We are enormously grateful to Desiree Rogers for the terrific job she's done as the White House Social Secretary," the president and first lady said in a statement. "When she took this position, we asked Desiree to help make sure that the White House truly is the People's House..."

Mission Accomplished, to borrow a phrase. During her tenure, why, they'd let anybody into the White House

Hmm. A new marketing tagline: "Shamu: Who will he eat next?"

Dan Choi Returns to Duty

He refused to shut up, despite DADT. And he's now back with his unit, where he should be.

He didn't ask. He told.

I am proud of Dan Choi.
