It seems like we’re spending the whole day writing about people who are leaving D.C., but Wonkette (who herself announced today that she’ll be taking February off), reviewed Saturday’s going away party for AP White House vet Scott Lindlaw.

Lindlaw, who has been at White House since Bush took office (so sorry, man!), wrote his goodbye column on Inauguration Day. It’s worth reading to the end to get to the part where he refers to Bush as a “caged animal.”

Expanding on Wonkette’s point, we went to a party last spring that also involved fake press credentials. We ask you: How lame is it that those are a regular party favor in D.C.?
