Jane Harman Hires Lanny Davis

I believe this is called "sticking your landing" in gymnastics:

Rep. Jane Harman has hired lawyer Lanny Davis, a former special counsel to President Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky affair, as a media advisor, The Cable has learned.

The enlisting of the heavyweight help is the latest sign that the California Democrat intends to push back hard against what she sees as an attempt by current and former national security officials to damage her reputation by providing alleged excerpts from transcripts of her surveilled phone conversations to the press.

Just when you think the line between political parody and true reality can't get thinner, someone goes and hires Lanny Davis to speak on their behalf.

If you didn't catch it last night, Jon Stewart's recap of the Harmen story will be 5:28 of your time well-spent:

Lanny Davis?

Yes, when you are considered maybe too close to the Likud/AIPAC connection, Lanny is the first guy that comes to mind to defend you.

Maybe he can have his BFF Joementum do some public appearances for Harman?

That will certainly calm the outrage on the left.

needs to quit or be fired

Lanny Davis is a sign Harman realizes reality is not her friend.

Lanny Davis is the same guy who went bonkers during the Lamont-Lieberman campaign. Did AIPAC recommend him to Jane?
