RNC Chairman... kaput

"He’s been on the gerbil wheel, as one of his close friends put it, for well in excess of six years now and he’s tired," said Ken Mehlman soon-to-be-former RNC Chairman, discussing his imminent unemployment.

Most public officials opt for the "spend time with the family," refrain, only Mehlman doesn't have one. If he is indeed gay, as Bill Maher said he was, just yesterday, and if the agenda and candidates he just finished gerbiling for are successful, then he won't ever have one. Not legally anyway.

Fortunately for him, perhaps, he ended up not being all that successful as his candidates took a historically unprecedented pounding on Tuesday.
