Senior administration officials are playing the media re: Gonzales replacement
So what else is new? Via Atrios:
A congressional source familiar with deliberations about Gonzales' replacement told CNN that the successor will not be Chertoff and that senior administration officials are "playing you guys," referring to the media.
A source close to Chertoff said of a possible nomination, "this would be a surprise to Mike."
So who was it, exactly, that played them? Then again, it's not like lying to the press, or lying to us, or lying to their wives for that matter, is unusual for this bunch.
And about that recess appointment habit...
