McClellan's Smoking Gun

It really doesn't come as a surprise that Scott McClellan, aka Scotty McWeeWee, after leaving his post as Baby Doc's press secretary has written a book.

But what does come as a surprise is his apparent willingness to throw his former masters under the bus over the Valerie Plame affair.

Consider this excerpt, found over at Editor and Publisher:

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. [Emphasis added]
So there you have it. Little Scotty has apparently grown a conscience and now is not hesitating to point the finger of blame where we knew all along it should have been pointed.

And yet the terminally-spineless weak-kneed sob sisters in the Democratic Party still can't see the necessity to impeach this evil bunch of Mayberry Machiavelli political criminals.
