The most interesting thing that I have gleaned from the excerpts I have read from McClellan's memoir on his employ as Bush P.R. Flak has nothing to do with G.W.'s well documented use of cocaine in his party years. I find far more fascinating the story of how McClellan publicly denied that Karl Rove and Scooter Libby had anything to do with the Valerie Plame leak (at the urging of Andy Card) only to have Bush one day in April of 2006 aboard Air Force One tell him that he himself had authorized the leak . Talk about being hung out to dry.
I watched many of his Press Conferences and I think that lying to the public on a daily basis just made him miserable and having lost all self respect, he had to bail.
Now the Republican attack machine is floating some mind control angle that the book is the result of a nefarious democratic ghostwriter and that McClellan is the victim of a Manchurian Candidate like conspiracy. See Novak's latest broadside. Everyone is so puzzled, it just doesn't sound like our Scott. Time for these liars to stop drinking the kool-aid and look in the mirror.
