The Messenger Shoots Self:
Press Secretary Scott McClellan resigned this morning. You know if there's anyone you could possibly muster any sympathy for in the Bush Administration, it would have to be the Press Secretary Scott McClellan. This guy has to stand out front more than anyone and try to explain all the mistakes this administration has made and try to put a good face on them. It really has to be one of the hardest jobs in the world. Especially for a president who rarely does his own news conferences, he's held the fewest of any president in the television age. Not to mention a VP who shoots someone in the face with a shotgut and waits nearly 24 hours to inform anyone of it. Scott handles the sharks in the White House Press corps while the President and VP take softballs from hand picked Republican audiences at staged appearances. As I've said before, Republicans love the idea of free speech in Iraq. But they're not so fond of it here in America. The only one available to shoot is the messager in this case. Could you blame Scott for, only figuratively of course, putting himself out of his misery?
