John Nichols/TheNation: Will McClellan Be John Dean to Bush's Richard Nixon?
"If the president and vice president knowingly participated in a scheme to attack a critic of their administration . . . they have committed a distinct sort of offense that the House Judiciary Committee has already determined to be grounds for impeachment."
I feel like the appropriate response is "and in this week's episode . . .".
So a guy who lied for this morally bankrupt Administration joins the list of previous liars in the public confessional. Well, Scotty, my first question is: if you were lying then, are you lying now? Who TF knows, and more importantly, who cares? One teaser graph released to the media at a time when Congress is "on vacation", in advance of yet another "bellringing blockbuster book" - conveniently unavailable until April - but which will no doubt appear as a "pirated" version online, which will send thousands of intrepid bloggers and reporters into a read-and-spew-forth-frenzy, ending only when the President mounts the podium to say: "How y'all doin'?"
Coupled with the follow-on statement about "bringing the troops home for Christmas" reporters will be rendered gooey-brained and teary-eyed, and trip over themselves to put a lead-tinged toy under the White House tree on their way out.
Scotty they've already screw'd ye'.
