Yesterday a snippet of Scott McClellan's book was released and off of that snippet the left jumped like puppets on a string.
The left, Bush lied, Bush lied, Bush lied.
The problem with book snippets are twofold.
First, they are meant to get buzz going and the left were certainly helpful there.
Second and most importantly, the reason that tactic works for publishers is because people don't use the brain god gave them to actually think for a second before running head long into a brick wall and giving the snippet the publicity the advertisers want at the same time as making yourself look stupid as all get out.
The brick wall in this case is called the truth which IF the left would have bothered to do two simple things, fact check and verify, they wouldn't have the headache nor the humiliation and egg on their face that they have right now.
WASHINGTON - Former White House spokesman Scott McClellan does not believe President Bush lied to him about the role of White House aides I. Lewis Scooter Libby or Karl Rove in the leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity, according to McClellan's publisher.
Peter Osnos, the founder and editor-in-chief of Public Affairs Books, which is publishing McClellan's book in April, tells NBC from his Connecticut home that McCLellan, "Did not intend to suggest Bush lied to him."
Osnos says when McClellan went before the White House press corps in 2003 to publicly exonerate Libby and Rove, the problem was that his statement was not true. Osnos said the president told McClellan what "he thought to be the case." But, he says, McClellan believes, "the president didn't know it was not true."
But hey, it was fun while it lasted according to the Horses ass...ummm.... mouth.
One would have thought that Scott Thomas, the 20 beheaded bodies, and Jessie Macbeth, just to name a few of the most recent times the left wore egg, would have taught them something about rushing into that brick wall head first.
FACT CHECK AND VERIFY before letting those puppet masters pull those strings.
