Anita Dunn Gets a New Job

Anita Dunn--the former Obama communications director who gained notoriety for her attacks on Fox News and her pronounced admiration for Chairman Mao--is getting a new job.  The Washington Post is reporting that D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee is hiring Dunn to manage her communications strategy:
Officials say Rhee hopes to use Dunn and her firm, Squier Knapp Dunn, to deal with the crush of press attention she receives both locally and nationally, and to assist in rolling out important stories to maximum strategic advantage. Officials would not specify what projects Dunn would work on, but she is expected to help on the unveiling of the long-awaited labor contract between the District and Washington Teachers' Union, which could be finalized in the next few weeks.
Putting a pretty face on ugly policies and working exclusively with unions?  Something tells me Dunn is perfectly suited for the job.
