'Round the Mulberry Bush'

Here we go 'round the mulberry bush,
The internet is abuzz with changes at the White House, as if they are meaningful. HuffPost is a good example.
The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush.
But, it is only a game of musical chairs. OMB (Bolton) goes to Chief-of-Staff, trade negotiator (Portman) goes to OMB, a deputy negotiator moves up a step (Susan Schwab). This is the kind of management shuffle that can give recycling a bad name.
Here we go 'round the mulberry bush,
But ... but, you say, Karl Rove got demoted. He is no longer chief policy coordinator. It is just a title, a change of cosmetics. Rove still has his security clearance, he still has every inch of power he ever did.
So early in the morning.
In the immortal words of that great American, Officer Barbrady, "move along, nothing to see here."
