I call it continuity
White House Spokeshead Scott McClellan on McCain/Hastert:
Asked about McCain’s remarks, Speaker Dennis Hastert, a former Illinois high school wrestling coach who was rejected for military service because of a bad shoulder, said, “If you want to see sacrifice, John McCain ought to visit our young men and women at Walter Reed and Bethesda (two Washington area military hospitals). … We have to react to keep this country strong not only militarily but economically.
Asked on Thursday how President Bush viewed the exchange, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan steered clear.
“I certainly wouldn’t want to get in between someone who has a history in wrestling and someone who has a history in combat,” he said.
So said the spokesman of someone who has a history of running away from a fight.
Wow. The more things change….
