Press Secretary tells all ...

.. or at least lots.


I always felt a little sorry for Scott McLellan because he really did seem like a decent sort of fellow who was uncomfortable in the role Bush placed him in. Most of Bush's other press spokesmen seemed to enjoy playing the press, like it was a game.

Clearly the press secretary's job is to put the best face on things possible, but there are boundaries of decency even for that kind of work. As in so many things, Bush has set a low bar.
