Rats and Sinking Ships

More bits leaking out today about Scott McClellan's new book, "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House & Washington's Culture of Deception." Back in November we looked at some sneak peeks into Scott's book in this blog. I'm not usually given to quoting myself, but I am going to repeat what I said back in November.
What would be nice to see from one of their enablers instead of a self-serving memoir after the fact is an admission that you were part of the circus. What would have been even nicer would be to have seen you stand up and say so while still in the circus. It's a day late and a dollar short now - so take your book and cling to it, hoping that while the media jumps up & down in excitement nobody takes the time to ask you the hard questions of your complicity in this administration's criminal, immoral and unethical actions.
So before you line up to pump money into Scott's bank account to read what we already know -- they lied to us, manipulated us, tricked us -- take a minute to ask Scott something at one of his signing appearances.

Why do you consider yourself exempt from the contempt the rest of the administration deserves?
Why didn't you see fit to warn the American people when it mattered?
Why did you believe that loyalty to a political party trumped loyalty to the nation?
Why do you think you deserve money for discovering a conscience now?

Very prescient.

And I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment of not enriching one of Bush's enablers just because he has (finally) come clean.

The damage this nation is enduring will last a generation or more. I'll read McClellan's book when it hits the library or is available on Amazon for 49 cents. The fact is, anyone paying attention over the past several years does not need to read McClellan's book, we already know chapter and verse of all the lies we have been told.

Great website-- you're on my RSS reader.
