One week after her keynote at the International PRSA conference, Bush’s image-shaper Karen Hughes stepped down from her high profile post at the State Department to spend time with her family in Texas. According to a recent Pew study, the U.S.’s image in critical countries has dropped since she took the position.

CNN’s cranky Jack Cafferty called her one of the “brighter bulbs” in the administration and when on to speculate about a connection to the “some sort of immunity” given to 17 Blackwater guards suspected in the murders of 17 Iraqi civilians. If there’s more to this than Hughes having trouble “selling lemons,” the D-Ring blog is on to something and a comparable person at Defense is next.
