Goolsby, now Pope

are so Palinesque.


This can mean ...

... one of three things.

1) Pope is satisfied with his work as Budget Director, streamling the process and improving how the job gets done, and can move on to other opportunities.

2) An election's coming and he can't donate to dark money groups, hand-pick candidates, and micro-manage his stinktanks without very obvious conflicts of interest.


3) Federal indictments are being prepared.

I've always thought

the best surprises were behind door # 3.

Can I take

all of the above?
