Karen "Kick Ass" Hughes resigned! And she's done... um... what, lately? I mentioned recently, of course, that Laura Bush has pretty much taken over her job, so maybe Karen got a little miffed? Or maybe the Blackwater scandal made the job she was barely doing just that much harder not to do? This is sad, though, because she's one of Bush's last few incompetent Texas buddies to stick around. Can
Tori Margaret Spelling be far behind? According to the Associated Press:
Hughes said she plans to quit her job as undersecretary of state and return to Texas, although improving the world's view of the United States is a "long-term challenge" that will outlast her.
"This will take a number of years," Hughes said in an interview to announce her departure. She was informing her staff of her decision Wednesday morning.
And Karen's right! It will for sure take "a number of years" for the world to recover from her efforts on behalf of her much-beloved boss.
