UN Ambassador Rice Withdraws from Secretary of State Consideration

PPPS (Washington, DC)—In a surprising turn of events in the search to replace outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, UN Ambassador Susan Rice formally withdrew her name from consideration for the post.

Ambassador Rice provided an explanation yesterday in the Opinion section of the Washington Post. Her decision has sent shock waves through our news room and among some of our readers.

Following are some of the responses we have received.


From Patriot Pete, who provided a translation:

Re: Susan Rice's commentary in the Washington Post (I tried to post there, but I seem to have been blocked).

MyTranslation: I lied. I got caught. Senate hearings would not be fun. I'll play victim. Please make them stop so I can keep my UN job.

PPPS Hires Social Media Director

PPPS (Littleton)—With the ever-increasing importance of social media, the Pundit Pete Press Service is pleased to announce the creation of a new Director of Social Media position, and the hiring of  a seasoned veteran of the virtual world, #Pound-Sign Pete.

#Pound-Sign Pete brings with him vast experience and knowledge of social media, and has been a pioneer in the "hashtag revolution." Pete is the author of the best-selling e-book How to Friend Like A Friend and created the successful consulting firm  #Hashtags-R-Us#.

Pete was recently invited to the White House and is often credited with introducing the President to social media. Rumors are circulating that Pete may be responsible for the wildly popular #My2K Twitter campaign.

Although Pete has tweeted and friended under a number of alias', which we are not at liberty to reveal, suffice to say that he has clogged up many a laptop screen, FB account, and smart phone over the years. Known among insiders as the "Tweeter-In-Chief", Pete has already been blocked by more people than most social-media addicts could ever hope to claim on their Followers list.

#Pound-Sign Pete will be in charge of monitoring trends taking place in the virtual world and for the maintenance of our Twitter and Facebook accounts.

We are honored to welcome #Pound-Sign Pete on board!
