Terry’s Toy Soldiers

Today was the first day in a long time that I wished I was still hanging out in the White House briefing room as they harangued Scott McClellan on the bogus “AWOL” thing. Do these people know just how much they look like Terry MacAuliffe’s toy soldiers? When the subject was Clinton and the draft, they all fell all over themselves about negative Republican campaigning. Once the roles change, they are the front-line troops of the negative Democratic campaign.

If I could have joined the questioning, I would have wanted to ask, “Scott, do you feel that Mike McCurry and Joe Lockhart watch these things and laugh their heads off? McCurry could come out and tell reporters that he’s made it his policy to learn nothing about what the President has done, so he doesn’t have to lie to anyone, and everybody here bought that.”
