Anita: Dunnzo

More time with the family            (ap)

Anita Dunn, the White House communications director who famously kicked up the recent unpleasantness with Fox News, is stepping down at the end of the month.

Dunn had taken the job on an interim basis and had been planning to leave at the end of the summer, the NYT reminds us. She is going back to her own PR shop, Squier Knapp Dunn, the Washington Post says.

Communications director is already possibly the most snake-bit job in the Obama administration. Dunn predecessor Ellen Moran lasted just a few months before departing for the Commerce Department. Dunn is expected to be replaced by her deputy, Dan Pfeiffer.
