Check His Briefs

Standing puffed-up and proud in the eye of the storm swirling around the current administration, he hasn't lost his programmed edge. Maybe that's why I love following the daily briefings of White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan. Give him credit for being a quick study when it comes to language. What "they" say: War in Iraq What "we" say: Global war on terrorism They say: U.S. casualties in Iraq We say: Sacrifices Them: U.S. military deaths Us: Sacrifices in defense of freedom They say: Scotter Libby, Karl Rove, Vice President Cheney, Valerie Plame, CIA leak We say: No comment. Ongoing investigation They ask about: Truth, trust We reply: I appreciate that question. Next. They want to know our stand on: the CIA and use of torture We say: blah, blah, blah, adhere to laws and values blah, blah, we are a country of laws and values. A testy lap dog in iron jockeys, that Scotty is, and the leash they have him on isn't around his neck.
