I don't know ... maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking that leaving a job only three months after you get appointed is a pretty good sign that either (a) he got pressed out by the conservatives who are already somewhat peeved at George II Fraudulency, or (b) that the Pentagon, that notorious bastion of gay-friendly brass, was not too thrilled to have him there on their own account. Either way, I'd be really astonished if this was purely and completely his own idea. It seems especially unlikely since he was hired on a 130 day appointment as a paperwork consultant, for heaven's sake, and he's leaving more than 30 days early. I suppose I could be selling him short but still ....
The part I find amusing is that his mere presence was making the GOP senators slow down the confirmation process for the DoD. His presence. And then they have the brass to complain that the slowness of the process is his fault!
That guy running the AIDS office is probably thankful that he reports directly to the Shrub. At least he has a bit more protection. (You'd think an entire building full of men with guns would be some sort of symbolic protection, wouldn't you? You'd be wrong.)
