Here Come Da Dems - Act IV

Scott McClellan / Act IV, Scene 6, You Didn't Give My Momma the Guvnaship.

Scott McClellan, memoirs, "“WHAT HAPPENED: Inside the Bush White House and What’s Wrong With Washington.”

“I stood at the White house briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the senior most aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby,” McClellan wrote.

“There was one problem. It was not true.”

McClellan then absolves himself and makes an inflammatory — and potentially lucrative for his publisher — charge.

“I had unknowingly passed along false information,” McClellan wrote.

---- What's going on? A disgruntled employee performs a BushCo bash in time for the election? A weak link in the Bush crew seeking to capitalize on scandal? A clueless schmuck unaware of his political surroundings or what his cronies were up to for years as he supported rightwing propaganda, before, during, and after the war, and then had an epiphany?

It's a ruling class chess move to swing the pendulum "leftward" ... back and to the left ... back and to the left ... uh where was I ... oh, yes, back to the democrats, to bolster the illusion of choice, to restore the illusion of honest and caring government lackeys who are out there and come to tell you the truth (and make a few dollars in the process).

It's showtime!

Kate -

I googled "Golden shovel" (because of something going on at work) and found your blog. Couldn't stop reading, this month's posts, anyway. Very interesting. Touchpoints: I've got a duaghter who is a USAF 2nd Lt, going to medical school, and a son who was in the Marines. Lost a son-in-law in Baghdad. But only one grandchild.

Anyway, looks like you're not getting a lot of comments, just wanted to say "I enjoyed" and will try to remember to get back. Thanks.

Hi Rick
Not a lot of comments but traffic not too bad for a nobody blogger :) I keep tabs occasionally through sitemeter at bottom of page.

So sorry for your loss.

Best to you and yours.
