The handy-dandy Ensign denial-to-resignation timeline

From smug denial to a touchy air of "let's move past this" to okay-I-did-it-but-my-weasel-language-says-otherwise, a timeline of the Ensign resignation. (Ensi-gnation? Lame? Too soon?) Here's one of our fave nuggets, from the Washington Post:

As a longtime journalist in Southern Nevada, native Las Vegan Andrew Kiraly has served as a reporter covering topics as diverse as health, sports, politics, the gaming industry and conservation. He joined Desert Companion in 2010, where he has helped steward the magazine to become a vibrant monthly publication that has won numerous honors for its journalism, photography and design, including several Maggie Awards.
