Like rats leaving a sinking ship

Oh, oh. Via Karl Denninger we learn that Obambam's budget director and Chief of Staff might be looking for a little Hope and Change of their own:

Bloomberg: Obama’s Budget Director Orszag Plans to Leave Cabinet Position

UK Telegraph: Rahm Emanuel expected to quit White House

And apparently Rolling Stone has an interview with Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the guy in charge of Afghanistan, and his top aides, who were, shall we say, less than admiring in their comments about the Marxist-in-Chief.

Fox News: White House: 'All Options on the Table' for Response to McChrystal's Remarks in Profile

Washington Post: Obama leaving options open on firing McChrystal, Gibbs says

You don't become a general (or admiral) without also being a savvy politician. I find it hard to believe that McChrystal didn't know exactly what he was doing and saying, knowing full well that it would be reported in the article. I guess he would rather be out of a job than preside over defeat in Afghanistan. Which says a lot about how the war over there is going.
