Naked Came I: Scott McClellan Tells All To Cover Own Ass

rally01So former White House press secretary Scott McClellan has written a book in which he reveals that the Bush administration lied about Saddam’s WMDs to go to war (gosh!), that they leaked Valerie Plame’s identity (no way!) and that they botched the response to Hurricane Katrina (you think?). He states that some of his assertions were “badly misguided”. Next he’ll be telling us the Terri Schiavo debacle was a cheap political ploy or something. Apparently, he chose to write the book because of the Plame thing, mostly because – and I’m reaching here – it had ramifications for McClellan himself. Since chubby little Scott is probably the worst professional liar ever (current mouthpiece Dana Perino is better, because she doesn’t seem to know shit about anything. although I suspect it’s an act), none of this is exactly earth-shattering news, but I expect this is just one of the first (of many) revealing tomes from inside the Bush administration to confirm the obvious truth and attempt to cover the author’s ass. It’ll be interesting to see how the apostate McClellan will be smeared for this.

UPDATE: A neat summary of the book.
