McClellan Book Reaction Hilarity Depot ThreadMay 28, 2008
This is a thread for all the LOL’s over this McClellan book thing. I just find it hilarious width and breadth of the theories I’ve come across. Like, “who got to him” type stuff. “I question the timing” . Ya know. Deflector shields on MAX.
Also, I’ll admit that I heard this on the radio today. This Scotty thing actually brought a woman to tears:
RUSH: We’ll start with Darla in Bellingham, Washington. Hi, Darla, nice to have you here.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. I tell you, I’m so… I’m so… I can hardly talk. I am so upset about this Scott McClellan book. I — I have children and grandchildren that I have to try to protect in our great nation. And here for a buck, for payback, I don’t care what it is. He can’t wait ’til the president’s out of office? We have to do things, and, of course, he has more credence because he’s known, quote, unquote, the president longer than many so he comes out with this trashy crap in this book that gives to the haters of this country, the terrorists of the world. If it makes our news media wonder if the president’s going to comment on it while he’s trying to give a speech to a graduating class then, oh, it must be that important, well, if they say it and it emboldens them — and it always does embolden them — well, does it make the country safer? Where is the patriotism in this country? I can certainly say it. We have lost our soul. Scott, you’re a citizen of the country first. If it’s payback to the president, fine. Is it payback to me? Is it payback to my family, too? Do you have to make the buck first? (voice breaking) I am sorry I sound upset but, Rush, that’s just — I — I — I don’t get it. I’m — I’m fed up. Where is the patriotism in this country? Where? Why have we decided that we don’t just have to hate the president, we have to hate our country, we have to hate what it stands for, we have to put our desire for money and our 15 minutes of fame above everything?
I’ll try to get more as I stumble upon it.
