McClellan’s Book Lacks Much of Anything
What’s there to add about Scott McClellan’s new book? All the excerpts I’ve read seem to only say what President Bush’s critics have been saying throughout his Presidency: Bush lied, people died; Iraq was a war of choice not necessity; blah, blah, blah. McClellan doesn’t add anything new. My lack of insight matches McClellan’s. It is ironic that the former White House press secretary was against tell-all books before he wrote his own. Like its author this book will soon be forgotten.
If McClellan worded things a certain way to spice up his book to boost sales he may end up being disappointed. Without no there there what’s to make his book have staying power? In a day or two cable news and the weblogs will be done talking about the book. Unless there’s something actually interesting it will quickly fall off the bestseller list and become a footnote of the Bush Presidency. So even though he possesses the “moral fiber of a jailhouse snitch” McClellan could be disappointed with his payday. Maybe he’s just happy to be in the news again.
