McCains McClellan Nightmare

THEY thought they were being so slick. When the McCain campaign abruptly moved last Tuesdays fund-raiser with President Bush from the Phoenix Convention Center to a private home, it was the next best thing to sending the loathed lame duck into the witness protection program. John McCain and Mr. Bush were caught on camera together for a mere 26 seconds, and at 9 p.m. Eastern time, safely after the networks evening newscasts. The two mens furtive encounter on the Phoenix airport tarmac, as captured by a shaky, inaudible long shot on FoxNews.com, could have been culled from a surveillance video.


But for the McCain campaign, any Mission Accomplished high-fives had to be put on hold. That same evening Politico.com broke the news of Scott McClellans memoir, and it was soon All Bush All the Time in the mediasphere. Or more to the point: All Iraq All the Time, for the deceitful origins of the war in Iraq are the major focus of the former press secretarys tell-all.

1. McAwful slammed McClellan the other day.
I was seriously contemplating whether I had lost my mind.
