Hi. I’m Scott. I be lying to you today. Our catch phrase of the day is…..

“sacred institution”

Go here…then type ‘sacred institution’ into your Google bar and click on your Google highlighter.

Pretty colors!

Here’s the best of Scotty (not counting twelve other instances where he used the term “institution”):

MR. McCLELLAN: John, the President has always firmly believed that marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman. He has always held that view. And I think what you’re referring to is that the President has talked about how states have the right to enter into their own legal arrangements. And that’s what the President is referring to.

MR. McCLELLAN: The President’s view was very well-known during the campaign of 2000, that he believes marriage is a sacred institution. And he supported efforts to protect and defend the sanctity of marriage

MR. McCLELLAN: The President is going to continue to fight to protect the sanctity of marriage. I think you have to look at this in the context of recent events. We cannot pretend that the events in Massachusetts or San Francisco are not happening. And that’s why the President is providing leadership, and making a decision based on principle. And he will continue to talk about the importance of protecting this sacred institution.

MR. McCLELLAN: What I’m telling you is that the President has always believed marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman; that it should be an institution that is protected. And that’s what the President has always made very clear. John was talking about a change, and I don’t see that.

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, this debate centers on marriage, and the definition of marriage. And some people have sought to redefine this sacred institution. And that’s why the President has come out strongly in support of protecting the sanctity of marriage.

MR. McCLELLAN: I think he defined marriage. He believes marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman. That’s how he would define it.

MR. McCLELLAN: I think that you have some 38 states — this issue is about marriage, Elisabeth. This is about the definition of marriage, and he believes strongly that it is a sacred institution, and that it’s important to protect it.

MR. McCLELLAN: Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman. I don’t know how I can make it more clearly that the President has said that repeatedly.

MR. McCLELLAN: And again, I said that he’s always viewed marriage as a sacred institution between a man and a woman. And I will keep — I would point back to some of what he said in terms of the — one, I’m not accepting the premise the way you stated the question — but point back to what he said in his remarks when it came to the issue of other states having to recognize laws of other states.

All this in 36 minutes.

Afterwards, a weary and shaken Scott McClellan was institutionalized…in a sacred one, of course.

(Added): The Demagogue caught McClellan staying on message before.
