When Deflecting the Scandal Du Jour Is Not Enough

You have to admire Bu$hCo. No administration in history has managed to deflect the media's attention from so many scandals. Scooter Libby gets indicted--an al Qaeda operative is captured. Vice President Buckshot blasts a hunting partner--Osama comes out with a new statement. The MSM is abuzz with stories of Iranian war plans--suddenly immigration is the biggest issue of the election cycle.

But you have to believe that there will come a time when there won't be anything left for the administration to try. What might happen on that day?
Q: Scott, we were wondering about the President's reaction to the indictment of Karl Rove.

MR. McCLELLAN: Democrats--

Q: I'm sorry. I don't think I understand.

MR. McCLELLAN: It's the Democrats fault. If you look back over the course of this administration everything that's gone wrong can be traced back to the Demo--

Q: Well perhaps...but we'd like to know if the President is concerned that the Fitzgerald investigation may go as high as the Vice President.

MR. McCLELLAN: Gas prices...we're facing a very serious situation with supply, and the President is doing everything possi--ensuring that the American can get gasoline at reasona--

Q: But Scott, what does that have to do with a possible indictment of the Vice President?

MR. McCLELLAN: I don't think th...hey look at this shiny object...and remember...Clinton got a blowjob in the Oval Office.


Yes, that's it. Start with blaming Clinton (because it works sooo well) then continue to cycle back through the "mosted hated groups"- gays, liberals, muslims, MSM, immigrants, Clinton, gays, liberals, muslims, MSM, immigrants... I'm pretty sure the War on Christmas will start in October this year, though. Just in time to remind everyone how the devil is taking over America.
That War on Christmas starts earlier and earlier every year.
I laughed so much I thought I would croak!
Did you see the Colbert video of his tryout to take over McClellan's job? It was awesome. He ends up trying to escape and is stalked by Helen Thomas. If you haven't seen it, it's still on the net, and you'll love it.
Perfect! I tell you, Phony McSnowjob is not fit to lick Scotty's boot (we'll leave that for Jimmy/Jeff!). How I will miss his world-class weasality.

Everybody kows that the 'War on Christmas' begins right after the 'War on Easter'.

Yes - it's amazing how all of a sudden there is a fury and uprising about illegal immigration, an issue that has been with us since - oh, I don't know 1777?. But now the 'Beer Guts Across America' are suddenly rabid with fury. Right when we're seriously discussing using nukes on a sovereign nation who has not attacked us and has asked to negotiate.
Alicia, I don't see how Snow will ever achieve the towering level of obfuscation that Scotty reaches, but with a good scandal in the wings you can do a lot. We'll just have to see what Bu$hCo comes up with.
The thing about McClellan is that he looked like he was lying. I swear there was a urinal inside his podium, because otherwise he would have been pissing in his pants.

Snow won't be like that. He's a professional pundit. He can lie with the greatest of ease. If the press corps doesn't challenge him, and hard, he's going to make the outrageous acts of this administration sound reasonable.
I think Colbert broke the volume knob on the new Podium, McSnowjob's going to have fun...
MR. McCLELLAN: I don't think th...hey look at this shiny object...and remember...Clinton got a blowjob in the Oval Office...

Mr. McClellan: Mr. Gannon, do you have a question for me?

Jeff Guckert/Gannon: Yes, Scott...thank you. Just wondering if you know that Nancy Pelosi was advocating felatio for all presidents, particularly those seaking the line item veto?

Mr. McClellan: Well, Jeff. Thank you for raising that question...
R-bE, thank you sir. You're too kind. (assuming you were addressing me :-) )

WS, I like it. A last blast for Scotty.

By the way, Field Mashall Von Rumsfeld was caught in a lie by former CIA analyst during a speech in Georgia. Go to this post on my blog to see the video, hear the audio and read the transcript.

Very funny, but you left one important scapegoat - Ted Kennedy.
Sometimes I think they start new scandals just to distract from the older ones. Is anybody keeping count?
This is an ongoing investigation.

No, it's not. It's over.

That's because we showed them our playbook.
I was addressing you, kvatch. The post was laugh out loud funny. You managed to capture the essential vacuity (is this a word? perhaps it is something I heard Scott say once at the gaggle?) and deer in the head lights manner of Scotty so well in your post that I could actually imagine his chins trembling with fear as he diverted the "press" with words like "and remember...Clinton got a blowjob in the Oval Office."
