    And fails, because she's not snippy enough and uses mainstream sources, not liberal ones.

    Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellen has a new book out, and it is surprisingly harsh on the subject Bush.

    Salient points:

    • McClellan charges that Bush relied on “propaganda” to sell the war.

    • He says the White House press corps was too easy on the administration during the run-up to the war.

    • He admits that some of his own assertions from the briefing room podium turned out to be “badly misguided.”

    • The longtime Bush loyalist also suggests that two top aides held a secret West Wing meeting to get their story straight about the CIA leak case at a time when federal prosecutors were after them — and McClellan was continuing to defend them despite mounting evidence they had not given him all the facts.

    • McClellan asserts that the aides — Karl Rove, the president’s senior adviser, and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the vice president’s chief of staff — “had at best misled” him about their role in the disclosure of former CIA operative Valerie Plame’s identity.

    McClellan's a bigger wimp than Ari Fleischer was.

    That's addendum, is what being reported by CNN.

    It nice to see a rat talk during a presidential campaign about his ex-boss...a lame duck.

    Well, I don't know about you, but I feel a lot better now, knowing that Bush used propaganda to send us to war and kill 4,000 of our troops.

    Day late, billions of dollars short, Scott McClellan.

    That guy got the shit kicked out of him in the press briefings unlike anyone I have ever seen.

    Really stunning, considering McClellan's deep Texas roots.
