Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan testified in Congress today about his terrible book, What Happened When I Did Yo Mama, and told them that President Bush may have vaguely possibly ordered former chief of staff Andy Card to order McClellan to deny I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby XVII’s involvement in leaking Valerie Plame’s name, to the press. At least there is “suspicion” Bush and Cheney were involved, somehow, McClellan thinks. Scott McClellan is very Important for this. [AP]

  1. It’s also Important that Scott keep his hands out of the pockets of his special trick pleated trousers and on top of the table throughout the proceedings. The committee has to maintain a certain decorum, you know.

  2. [re=21077]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: No, not really, just that the cookie was stolen; and that if the president stole it, he didn’t do so intentionally.

  3. [re=21077]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Cindy McCain stole the recipe, McClellan stole the cookie. Culture of Corruption my friend. Culture of Corruption.

  4. AngryBlackGuy, I love you! You are a Wonkette institution. Probably don’t have a decent job, because you’re always snarking online (God bless you). Nevertheless, you’re aces in my book!

  5. [re=21089]TGY[/re]: yeah, you really wish one of these ballless wonders would grow some (or would have 5 years ago) and stand up and say “they ALL lied, are lying now, and will continue to lie in perpetuity. You have been taken for a huge ride, and a lot of people made a ton of money by screwing you.” But won’t happen.

  6. Upon returning home from the testimony, Scott McClellan discovered that someone had broken into his apartment, viciously strangled his pet canary and left a note on the birdcage floor “You’re next.”

  7. Beautifu. Issa’s asking,”Dude, couldn’t you have waited until after the election? That was a dick move, man.”

    Or something like that.

  8. Unrelated, but did anyone else notice that Walnuts is campaigning in Canada today? Is he really senile enough to forget that it’s not part of this country? (Except Winsdor)

  9. McClellan told the House Judiciary Committee that he doesn’t know if a crime was committed.

    Yes, he does. Hes just chickening out due to the threats he’s been getting from the wingnuts.

  10. McClellan said he does not believe Bush knew about or caused the leak.
    Oh, right — he always means well, our little Georgie. It’s just that Cheney kid is a bad influence — what with his snarl, and the putting of squirrels in the microwave, and the waterboarding and burning down Iraq with the guided weapons. Georgie would never do that.

  11. I can neither confirm nor deny those implied confirmations and/or denials. It’s possible that something might have happened but probably not, mostly. It’s a definite maybe.

  12. [re=21109]greatgooglymoogly[/re]: Not for Scott Mclellan is the noose: rather, he’d choke on his own words and waterboard himself to death with verbal constipation.

  13. Ah, I can never get enough of Puffy McMoonface.

    Fuck You and the Retarded Ivy-League-Schooled Cowboy-Wannabee Jackass Horse you rode in on.

  14. For his entire life, every time Chimpy has said anything, it has come out 8 shades of stupid. So I love these guys who are just noticing that something seems to be amiss….

  15. He was lying back then, he’s lying now, he was probably lying in the book, and the fact that he always looks seriously uncomfortable when he’s lying, which some people assumed meant he felt guilty, is just part of the lie. He’s not a bit uncomfortable. The whole book thing was just so he could get back in front of Congress and lie some more.

  16. [re=21148]KevoTron[/re]: Oh grand — we’re fucked. Still and again.
    from the World Atlas:
    The United States of America

    Area: 9,826,630 sq. miles
    Exports: War, Stupidity
    Form of Government: Unconstitutional Monarchy

  17. Scottie — if you had balls I’d say we should string you up by them for being such a goddamned pussy all these years. Shoulda said something a little earlier, you little puke, before, oh ’bout, 5,000 American troops died and god only knows how many scores of thousands terribly terribly wounded — not to mention the 100,000+ Iraqis.

  18. [re=21322]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Okay, but did you know they think you’re stupid?

    Seriously, this FISA shit really pisses me off. Where the fuck was Hopey on this one? That bastard should have said SOMETHING about it in the last two days… Maybe his encouragement would have helped. This fucking Democratic congress is a fucking joke.

  19. He also suggested that Bush could do much to redeem his credibility if he would embrace “openness and candor and then constantly strive to build trust across the aisle.” – so yeah, I’m sure that’ll happen when pigs are flying or hell HAS actually frozen over. I am glad I’m not the only one who thinks Scott’s still a douche.
