Scott Vs Everybody: Update

The White House will have the transcript of today's press conference soon.

Crooks and Liars has some video.

Once again, McClellan is Nathan Thurm.

"I didn't say that. You said it."

Long story short: The WH reporters hammered Scotty on the Old Man's hunting mishap.

Question - WHY WON'T THEY PUSH SCOTT LIKE THIS RE: ROVE, ABRAMOFF, THE DOWNING STREET MEMO (parts I and II) AND THE MISSING BILLION$ IN IRAQ (ETC)?!

Huh?!

What a joke.
Q Was it Cheney's gun? Is that his gun, that shotgun?

MR. McCLELLAN: I'm sorry?

Q Was it the Vice President's gun?

MR. McCLELLAN: You ought to talk to the Vice President's Office and check that fact.

Q You don't know?

MR. McCLELLAN: You can check with their office.

Q You said this morning that the President was informed Saturday night by Karl Rove and Andy Card.

MR. McCLELLAN: Yes, initially by Andy Card.

Q At that point, what was he informed? Was he informed that the Vice President had accidentally shot somebody?

MR. McCLELLAN: No, I think initially, again, Andy had the same report that I had, or a very similar report to what I had. And so we didn't know who was involved.

But then there was additional information that was coming in later in the night, or later in the day and on into the morning.
Huh?!

"But then there was additional information that was coming in later in the night, or later in the day and on into the morning."

Huh?!?!
Q They knew exactly what happened --

Q -- to not reach the Vice President to find out that he was the shooter? How is that possible?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, Kelly, I can only tell you what the facts are.
And the facts are...I can't tell you.

Love the fact that he kept pushing the "very first priority was making sure Mr. Whittington was getting the medical care, and that's where all efforts were focused" line.

Classic.

More later...
