Wise Law Blog picked up on Scott McClellan's new tell-all book. It seems little Scotty felt he was duped into lying to the press and the public about the Valerie Plame outing. Strangely, Scotty blames... Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney, the president's chief of staff, the president himself and Karl Rove for feeding him lies to feed the public.
That would be a blockbuster revelation if it weren't for one thing: We had already figured that out - long ago. Now McClellan wants us to spend money on a book that tells us something we already knew? Do you want fries with that?
But Garry points us to something that is somewhat spectacular.
Karl Rove, the man who is responsible for the moron in the Oval Office is tossing his old boss right under the bus. In a message to the Republican candidates for the 2008 presidential elections, this is what he offered:
Every presidential election is about change and the future, not the past. So show them who you are in a way that gives the American people hope, optimism and insight. That's the best antidote to the low approval rates of the Republican president. Those numbers will not help the GOP candidate, just as the even lower approval ratings of the Congress will not help the Democratic standard-bearer.Always the strategist, Rove shows loyalty to one thing: his dogma. He ditched Bush; the candidate of his own creation.
Maybe Americans should read Scotty's book.
(This was Rove's first outing as a blogger and the best he could come up with was a very weak "How to beat Hillary Clinton". Karl, you won't win a Webbie with shit like that.)
