Mafia Lieutenant Signs Up

Ed Gillespie, who has been the chairman of the Virginia Republican Party is stepping down to take Dan Bartlett's slot at the White House; or at least that's what the Washington Times reports.

With the Democratic Congress breathing down the neck of loyal Bushies, Howling Latina supposes that the administration needs a trusted "caporegime" to lead the counter-offensive and stave off the subpoenas that are sure to rain down like bullets during an Army shooting exercise.
Virginia Republican sources say Ed Gillespie will today be offered the job of counselor to the president, replacing Dan Bartlett as one of President Bush's top advisers.

[A] source familiar with the situation, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Washington Times that Mr. Gillespie was planning to visit the White House this afternoon, and if offered the job, he plans to take it.
Well let's hope the loyal foil actually gets his White House prize; but just the same, he might want to keep counsel on retainer; working for the Bush administration just ain't what it used to be.
