McClellan Gone

Via the AP:

White House press secretary Scott McClellan said Wednesday he is resigning, continuing a shakeup in President Bush's administration that has already yielded a new chief of staff and could lead to a change in the Cabinet.

Appearing with Bush on the White House South Lawn just before the president boarded a helicopter at the start a trip to Alabama, McClellan, who has parried especially fiercely with reporters on Iraq and on intelligence issues, told Bush: "I have given it my all sir and I have given you my all sir, and I will continue to do so as we transition to a new press secretary."
Once again, we have the 'shake-up' that isn't. So you've replace the Press Secretary. This may address the fact that you feel your message isn't getting out, or at least not getting out in a way that best for your administration, but it doesn't change the message.

With an approval rating in the basement, no amount of window dressing will help. New speakers may make the sound better, but if the song sucks, people still won't listen.
