Who Is On the Way Out of White House
The buzz is that Scott McClellan is on the way out as White House Press Secretary. The new guy maybe Dan Senor. The parisan in me hates to see Scotty go. No one could do such a good job of making the White House look bad on a day to day basis. Scotty's piss poor attitude and lack of chrisma made a fearful press corp turn on him. The Helen Thomas smackdown has now become a daily ritual that Scotty must endure.
SCOTT McCLELLAN Well, the people in this room know that I'm someone that can be trusted.
HELEN THOMAS: How do you know that?
SCOTT McCLELLAN You can look at comments that people in this room have made.
HELEN THOMAS: Have you taken a poll on this? (Laughter.)
In other news: Donald Rumsfeld continues to have rationale people call for his resignation. Democrats think Rumsfeld is incompetent. Republicans don't want to be forced to defend Rummy. Bush is one of the few who view the guy as an asset.
