Perino Offers Comment On McClellan
There was no mention of Scott McClellan's book, What Happened, in this morning's press gaggle, but MSNBC is reporting today that White House Press Secretary Dana Perino did offer brief, "off camera" commentary.
Today at the off-camera briefing, White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said she has discussed Scott McClellan's forthcoming book with the president, and Perino said President Bush "has not and would not knowingly pass false information."
Naturally, one could imagine some potential follow-up questions. Like, "So, are you saying that the president is so out-of-touch with his own administration that members of his inner circle are regularly able to abuse his official mouthpiece in this way?" Or: "Can you state with any degree of confidence that you, yourself, have never been similarly misled?" But, heck, if you want imagination, you'll likely find nothing more entertaining than TBogg's "Brief History of Future Press Conferences." SPOILER ALERT: It involves Joe Lieberman, an invasion of Yemen, and "deep personal shame"...just like Nostradamus predicted!
