Scott McClellan = Worthless Shill

When questioned by reporters yesterday about the Karl "Turd Blossom" Rove connection to the leaking of the identity of undercover CIA analyst Valerie (Wilson) Plame, White House Press Secretary McClellan repeatedly said he couldn't comment because the matter is under investigation.

However, many reporters pointed out that McClellan had commented previously even though the investigation was ongoing. For example, in September and October 2003, McClellan stated that "The President knows that Karl Rove wasn't involved," "It was a ridiculous suggestion," and, "It's not true."

Yesterday, the exchange went as follows:
Question: "You stood at that podium and said that Karl Rove was not involved, and now we find out that he spoke about Joseph Wilson's wife. So don't you owe the American public a fuller explanation?"
McClellan: "There will be a time to talk about this, but now is not the time to talk about it."

concluded with: "I've really said all I'm going to say on it."
