From Friday’s press briefing aboard Air Force One:
Q I’ve got another question about women. In the last few public events, we’ve seen anti-Bush women treated rather roughly, physically. Does the President — is he aware of the treatment of these demonstrators?
MR. McCLELLAN: I don’t know what you’re specifically referring to, Ed.
Q Well, one we saw a woman being led out by her hair, rather forcefully. Another one yesterday at Mrs. Bush’s event.
MR. McCLELLAN: Those are questions I think you can direct to authorities. I don’t know what you’re specifically referring to.
Omg! Omg! Omg! An obvious, bald-faced lie from little Scotty McClellan. Like Ari used to do! (Unless he really missed that story. Sure.) Anyhow: We’re so proud. Keep it up, Scott — maybe someday, with lots of practice, you can lie about something really important. . . just like the President.
