With the publishing of McClellan's book, the Whitehouse surrogates have gone through the motions. They repeatedly compare his rhetoric to that of a lefty-blogger (if they think Scott McClellan has harsh things to say about them, they should read this lefty-blog), and say he is a disgruntled employee (if he is, this would be understandable).Karl Rove said
This doesn't sound like Scott. It really doesn't. Not the Scott McClellan I have known for a long time. Second of all--sounds like somebody else, it sounds like a left-wing blogger
Rove seems to think that McClellan has been replaced by some sort of liberal pod-person.
One wonders why they bother, though. The facts McClellan points out are pretty well established. I doubt slandering McClellan will win the administration back its popularity.
