MEHLMAN OUT, CNN REPORTS
Barely a day after they outed him, CNN now reports that RNC head Ken Mehlman, exhausted, will out himself... as head of the RNC. (You see what we did there?)
Two sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Mehlman has made clear to close associates for some time he was likely to leave after the 2006 elections -- and that there is no dissatisfaction with his performance in the midterm cycle.
He always seemed like one of the more affable bastards, so we wish him the best of luck. Say what you will, he's clearly way less of an asshole than Bill Maher.
