The 11 faces of Jay Carney: A remembrance

White House press secretary Jay Carney is leaving his high profile gig after three-plus years at the center of the political storm.

Almost a year ago to the day, we did a post detailing the eight faces of Carney as he labored through a particularly difficult daily press briefing. (The topics ranged from  the IRS scandal to Benghazi and back.)  In honor of Carney's departure, we offer up a final collection of his many, many faces from the podium (and occasionally out in the real world).  He was a regular Lon Chaney or, for a slightly more modern reference, a regular Jaqen H'ghar.
