No Honor Among Kleptocrats
Jane Hamsher of firedoglake points out that the White House has cut its press secretary off at the knees:
...the White House came out from underneath the cone of silence on November 16 to announce that neither George Bush nor certain senior members of his staff were Woodward's source. Anyone want to count the number of times Scott McClellan has said "we will not comment on an ongoing investigation"? [...] The decision by the White House to break its own rule means that nobody this side of Les Kinsolving is going to provide Scottie with any shelter from the storm. Although the next gaggle should sure be some entertaining fodder for Crooks & Liars, McClellen was effectively neutered by the announcement. He's toast.People keep asking, is Bush evil or stupid? Things like this show that the answer is "Yes."
