I have no idea where to go with this:
Dan Froomkin reports that the latest list of White House staffers and their respective salaries has been released. Among the highest-paid White House staffers: Press Secretary Dana Perino, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, Counsel Fred Fielding, and Counselor Ed Gillespie. Froomkin highlights some interesting bits from the disclosure:
– After four years of stagnating at $30,000, the bottom of the payscale was finally raised this year to $33,400.
– There are fully 25 lawyers in the White House counsel’s office.
– Staci A. Wheeler, the White House’s director of fact checking, is — at $60,000 — either being paid way too little or way too much, depending on how you want to look at it.
Teh Boy Emperor has a director of fact checking ... the possibilities for snark are absolutely endless.
