Quick headlines from the Bitter Newsroom:

“Eric Holder, President-elect Barack Obama’s choice for attorney general, will earn $4.6 million from his law firm [Covington & Burling] this year and next, including deferred compensation and a separation payment.” Because it’s not like you can live off a government salary anymore.  [Associated Press]
