Nepotism Never Works--Scott McClellan is Living Proof

It was a stunningly stupid appointment. When I marvelled at how inappropriate it was, and at what a contrast there was to the brilliant Ari Fleischer, my husband told me that Scott McClellan's brother had done something, and President Bush was thanking him by appointing his utterly inarticulate and colossally ineffectual little brother as Press Secretary. It turns out that the former nobody is an ingrate and a petty mercenary who doesn't mind having someone ghost-write a book in his name just to make big bucks. This man was a complete non-entity before his mind-bending appointment, and it's understandable that he now lusts for the limelight to continue to shine on his potato-like visage. Pity he's so intellectually-challenged that he had to use someone else's brain to do so. The democrats are going to use him in an attempt to bring down Senator McCain. When people get another chance at listening to this dullard's rhetoric, it will be risible. But the Democrats don't set much store by literacy and intellectual aptitude, so it just may work for them--they march in lockstep when it comes to blindly hating Republicans, so it is entirely predictable that they shall hang on every word of this mentally-challenged, monosyllabic, miserable (thanks, Bob Dole) critter.

Interesting White House Press Gaggle with the McClellan Brothers


White House Press Secretary Dana Perino expressed shock the viciousness of McClellan's memoir:
"Scott, we now know, is disgruntled about his experience at the White House. For those of us who fully supported him, before, during and after he was press secretary, we are puzzled. It is sad - this is not the Scott we knew."

No, it’s not the Scott they knew—it’s a ghost-writer. The malevolent, mendacious mental midget McClellan isn’t smart enough to speak, much less write:
