Perino: "This is NOT the Scott we knew...."

The world is deeply in need of some levity, and today, White House Press Secretary, Dana Perino, delivered just that in addressing the Former Press Secretary's [Scott McClellan] stinging accusations directed at the The President's and his Administration's allegded use of lies and deception to justify the Iraq War. Of all the possible ripostes, Perino hilariously said
"For those of us who supported him before, during and after he was Press Secretary, We are puzzled. It is sad. This is NOT the Scott we knew....".
Duh! Of course it's not the Scott you knew...he's begun telling the truth! Now the job of the Press Secretary we know is tough, and being the whack-a-mole for this administration must be excruciating on a daily basis. Nonetheless, Perino persisted in providing further entertainment when she was asked whether the President would comment on accusations by his Chief Liar that, effectively, he lied on such a matter of paramount national importance, both past, present and future. She replied:
" "I do not expect a comment from him on it. He has more pressing matters than to spend time commenting on books by former staffers."
WHOOOAH! Sorry Dana, but this is not merely a book by a former staffer. This is a book by a very loyal defender of the administration and the former Chief Liar saying He was at the center of a web of lies spun by nearly all concerned to a priori justify policy.

Too busy to comment, indeed!

(apologies to Gary Trudeau for the DB - I'm sure he'll understand)

Rats are jumping ship. Along with Mishkin's resignation, we get this little inconvenient piece from Fisher:

"Cassandra" said...

There isn't much I like in or from Texas, but Fisher is one of the few.

Its a shame that at the end, there is no culpability for the mess they'll leave. A crying shame...

W will leave office and America's national debt will be over 10 trillion dollars.

Iraq will cost over 3 trillion dollars (estimated by Joe Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes).
