Madman's Top Ten
President Bush and his hoards of defenders at the White house, on Fox News, CNN, in the print media and on too many NeoCon radio shows to name know that something is wrong with former Press Secretary Scott McClellan. They are "puzzled" by his new book "What Happened" and have even suggested that someone - whoever that "someone" may be - is putting words in his mouth and thoughts in his brain.
In the Bush estimation, there can be no way that this former loyal Bushie would ever have betrayed his master, President Bush. Why, it's, in fact, unthinkable. So rather than dwell on McClellan's own words and statements like the following from an Associated Press article today (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080530/ap_on_go_pr_wh/mcclellan_book_12)...
The president was leaving an event in North Carolina, McClellan recalled, and as they walked to Air Force One a reporter shouted a question: Had the president, who had repeatedly condemned the selective release of secret intelligence, enabled Libby to leak classified information to The New York Times back then to bolster the administration's arguments for war?
McClellan took the question to the president, telling Bush: "He's saying you yourself were the one that authorized the leaking of this information."
"'And he said, 'Yeah, I did.' And I was kind of taken aback," McClellan said.
"For me I came to the decision that at that point I needed to look for a way to move on, because it had undermined, I think, a lot of what we had said."
... and taking into consideration that anyone who ever was associated with this administration might actually have developed a conscience and tell the truth, the following reasons for McClellan's betrayal will be distributed very soon. (I was lucky enough to get a peek and will now share them with all of you):
1- McClellan's crazy! He's always been crazy. We didn't even hire him to be Press Secretary. One day, he just wandered to the podium and refused to leave. No one had the heart to ask him to get away from there, so we figured we'd just leave him there.
2- Look for the pod! Look for the pod!
3- Abbie Normal's (ABNormal) brain was accidentally put into his head. Wait! Soon he'll be singing "Putting on the Ritz.
4- "They're" whoever "they" are) holding his wife, children and dog hostage... And he loves that dog!
5- "He's a former disgruntled employee with an ax to grind - who were we talking about again?"
6- No one will ever again hire McClellan so this is the only way to meet the balloon mortgage payment on his interest-only loan.
7- A million monkeys with a million typewriters showed up at his house.
8- Found out that President Bush really didn't mean it when he said to him, "One of these days he and I are going to be rocking on chairs in Texas, talking about the good old days and his time as the Press Secretary."
9- As a "Secretary", wasn't allowed to sit on President's lap and take dictation.
10- Just the latest in a group of liars who include: Colin Powell, Richard Clark; Paul O'Neill and George Tenet.
