On Monday, President Bush’s former spokesman, Scott McClellan, will be a best-selling author, adding to the canon of insider criticism of the administration. But will he be willing to put what he knows in the service (REAL service) of the public. Friday, McClellan, said he’d be willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on a host of issues being investigated (the intelligence leading to the Iraq War is the doozy).
But I tend to believe, if he does testify, he is not going to give any valuable information that would incriminate Bush, Cheney, or Rumsfeld. If his interview with Wolf Blitzer is any indication, McClellan won’t totally admit to any definite wrong-doing, especially his own. (As the White House spokesperson, he was responsible for keeping up the lies). And when Blitzer asked McClellan if he was willing to apologize to the American public for going along with the Bush administration’s misinforming the public about, among other topics, the War, he skated nervously around the words “I’m sorry.” Though he did include the words “I talk about in my book” in explanations throughout the interview. Which leads one to think this new behind-the-scenes look at a woefully deceptive president is more to sell books that to serve the public

I was late in getting a fax machine in the early 90s. I was late to the Internet in the late 90s. I was late to get a cell phone (two years ago). And I was late seeing the power (and the lack thereof) in a blog. But as with all things techy and new fangley, I see I must join the ranks, and have officially joined the ranks. And now my chatter becomes part of the incessant chatter and the billions of voices in the world who feel that what they say and think matters. So here I am..... And, oh, by the way, some of what I say has been put in a book. Of course, my first entree would tell you to check it out. But, I promise, from here on out I have more than a book to impart to you. This is an only an introduction.......
