Why Scott McClellan looks like a boob

I have no intention of reading Scott McClellan’s tell all. My reading time is too precious and there are fair number of Balzac volumes I still haven’t cracked, so finding a few hours for tedious Scott seems unlikely.

But I will say that his publication is a bit ill-timed, considering that Washington Post, of all outlets, is now entertaining the idea that we have actually won in Iraq.

If that is true, McClellan’s book, which evidently trumpets the old line that we were sold phony goods on Iraq, will be less than a blip in history. Twenty years from now Bush will be seen as one of the great presidents, having moved the Middle East toward democracy. Everything keeps moving on.
