Another Bush aide turns

Posted By on Tue, May 27, 2008 at 7:46 PM

Now it's Scott McClellan, former press spokesman, who says the Bush administration ran on propaganda, the "liberal" media did a sorry job and, well, you know. You will be shocked to learn that Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby are liars.

Former White House spokesman Scott McClellan says Karl Rove and convicted Cheney chief of staff Scooter Libby met in secret as the prosecutors circled in the CIA leak case. In his new book, McClellan suggests the two aides went behind closed doors int he West Wing to get their story straight. And McClellan finally opens up about that notorious news conference in which he misled the media by saying Rove and Libby hadn't peddled Valerie Plame's name. In fact, they had. McClellan says he was misled by the pair -- and sent into the White House briefing with a lie.

Worst. Most corrupt. Administration. Ever. But you knew that. And John McCain is still playing defense for people who slandered him and his family in 2000. Is that pathetic, or what?
