An Ode To Scott McClellan...

kinda.

Joke Was on You by Wonkette

"I've always had a soft spot for departing White House press secretary Scott McClellan. Watching him give his choked-up goodbye on the White House lawn last week, I realized why. The jowls he's grown, the hair he's lost and the dark circles that have grown under his eyes in two years and nine months on the job have made him resemble Washington's other helpless diplomatic pawn: Scott McClellan is the baby panda of the press corps."
"In the contentious briefings that followed every scandalous revelation about the administration's attempts to undermine the antiwar criticisms of Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, McClellan almost physically crumbles. His eyes grow dim, his shoulders slump. He becomes twitchy and marble-mouthed, stammering through his stock phrases -- he professed inability to comment on special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald's investigation more than 200 times in the last year and a half -- and, occasionally, perspiring visibly. In the game of dodgeball between the press corps and the president's men, McClellan was always getting beaned between the eyes." [more]
"Nice guys finish last" might actually apply in this case.

and, poor ol' Scotty. Bought the lies, hook, line and sinker. They
needed someone gullible enough to
swallow all the drivel they were putting out. Despicable, evil and
giving Scotty the boot....same ol',
same ol'. No honor among thieves.

Christy, I can't comment on that question while there is an ongoing investigation.

I can not tell you Grand Man.

I do not know the answer to it.

Not for lack of trying, but I was hoping someone here knew.

I was hoping perhaps Mr. Fitzgerald could tell us.

Why him?

Because apparently he is the only one left among us who could find out.

If not him, if you do not know, then none of us may ever know.

I think we all forgot it was odd that we did not know.

Sleep well.

The Prosecutor Is Found . . . Dreamy

Readers want to know: Where exactly is Patrick Fitzgeral d 's Plamegate investigation headed?

Will he charge anyone with leaking the CIA agent's identity? And most importantly -- is he single?

"Am I weird? Patrick Fitgerald is cute!" a female journalist wrote to us shortly after the special prosecutor's eye-catching Friday news conference explaining charges against Scooter Libby . "Saturday Night Live's" Tina Fey spelled it out in a monologue the next day: "Trim, soft-spoken, manly Patrick Fitzgerald. His clear, steady voice, piercing blue eyes and unimpeachable integrity restoring my faith in America and making me want to do things I have never done before."

Good news, ladies! The strapping 44-year-old is single! But dirt on his social life is harder to come by than reliable leaks of secret grand jury proceedings.

Look, we tried:

"Beyond telling you he's a confirmed bachelor, I am going to decline to answer questions about his personal life," said his spokesman, Randy Samborn . Dating anyone? "That I'm not going to answer." What's he looking for in a girl? "No comment." Who's he take to Mets games? "No comment."

An old Amherst buddy, Los Angeles lawyer Tony Bouza , described Fitzgerald as "a great catch. . . . He's funny, smart, warm, easy to be around -- you couldn't ask for more." Advice for the interested? "Be yourself. He's a man of relatively simple pleasures."

Hey are Anon at 6:05 and Christy new to this blog? I think early this month that Fitz stated that he did have a girlfriend. You have to look through the blog.
But about Scotty, this article almost makes me feel sorry for him, almost.
He was not as mean as Ari Fleicher but he was clearly out of his element.
I think he seriously needs to work on his masochistic issues. He is one messed up dude.

Scotty should have these reporters asking the questions.

It's been 3 days since McFelon been gone. I still miss the little buckeroo. From those 2 1/2 years being the WH secretary, he probably leaned on the bottle from all that stress from the D.C. Press pool of reporter sharks... And I did get tired of McFelan saying a thousand times, "we are not going to comment because there is an ongoing investigation." Best wishes to McFelon on new employment. But, the Gerbil Administration really screwed McFelon big time!

Scott McClellan had an impossible job. The way things are, I don't see how he could have pleased both his boss and the reporters?

Ummm, No I'm not 'new', and I am not sure what that has to do with Mr. Fitzgerald having or not having a girlfriend.

If Scotty knows anthing he should fess up becase we the people paid his salary not the Dudes up stairs lyin'...
I think he's lucky to get away from the stench..
As for Ari..I think he knows he can be connected to the trolls..
I think heleft because he knew he had done somting wrong..but don't think he can ditance himself enough unless he singing like a canary

Oh, I get it, you thought I was new cause I never revealed myself to you before.

Ummm, still not sure what that has to do with his love life but I am glad to know he does have a girlfiend, cause honestly, it would be quite wierd if he didn't.

I somewhat feel sorry for Scotty. But before I go into that I have to say he looks like he could be Karl Rove's son. Now he lied for the Administration even when he was caught in the lie he lied again for them. Now they have ruined his resume and left him out to hang. Who would hire a liar ok maybe Fox but thats it. I really hope Scotty's family talk to him and make him stand up for himself. What does he have to lose now.

I wonder if Scotty just feels "used" now?

Christy,

Silverstein owned them? Neil Bush owned their security? Just guessing, of course?

Was the power out in the building the Sept 10 for 4 hours, while "engineers" were coming and going? Did the former German PM say the whole operation was run from Building 7, which is the reason it had to be "pulled" at 5 pm that day-despite never taking a hit?

I don't know, but here are more questions. As for Fitz having a girlfriend, so? Confirmed bachelors are always fair game...because they eventually will have a "new girlfriend". Not saying Fitz is a "playa"...I just know the kind ;-)
