Spanky spanks his old boss.

Dear old Scotty McClellan, extremely bad Presidential mouthpiece, is coming out with a book. Here's an excerpt:

The most powerful leader in the world had called upon me to speak on his behalf and help restore credibility he lost amid the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. So I stood at the White house briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the senior-most aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.

There was one problem. It was not true.

I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice President, the President's chief of staff, and the president himself.

Oh, dear.

Watch for the usual suspects to declare that no one can believe a word Scott McLellan says anymore, on the grounds that he's no longer working for the White House, and the only people you believe about the White House are people who are on their payroll.

I wonder if they actually BELIEVE that?

Anyway, they'll SAY it, whether they believe it or not.
