Bloomberg reports that Larry Summers will be leaving his White House position after the November election.

I love this:
Administration officials are weighing whether to put a prominent corporate executive in the NEC director's job to counter criticism that the administration is anti-business, one person familiar with White House discussions said. White House aides are also eager to name a woman to serve in a high-level position, two people said. They also are concerned about finding someone with Summers' experience and stature, one person said.
They want to replace famous misogynist Larry Summers with a woman...after the election (because Maude knows they wouldn't want anyone thinking they're pandering to women and alienating the prized misogynist vote before the election).

Naturally, I also love that they want to install a corporate crony "to counter criticism that the administration is anti-business." Fates forfend a Democratic administration be viewed as anything but in thrall to the Robber Barons who have trashed the economy!

And let's make sure the hack is a lady, so when the lefties complain, Gibbs and Obama can accuse progressives (especially feminist progressives) of not being happy with anything they do: "We give them a woman and all they can do is complain about how she's a corporate mouthpiece! We can't win!"

Whoops your one-dimensional chess is showing.
