Scotty got his tushy kicked again over Cheney

Raw Story has the transcript of today’s briefing. McClellan had to go fetal again while he dissembled and obfuscated for his bosses. Just one section of the insanity.

Q I just want to clarify one thing. Is it appropriate for a private citizen to be the person to disseminate the information that the vice president of the United States has been — has shot someone?

MR. MCCLELLAN: That’s one way to provide information to the public. The vice president’s office worked with her — well, I should say the vice president — the vice president spoke with her directly and agreed that she should —

Q But you make it sound like it’s up to her to decide when it comes out.

MR. MCCLELLAN: — agreed that she should make it public, and then they would provide additional information.

Q But why should it be up to a private citizen to decide when it comes out?

MR. MCCLELLAN: It came out — it came out Sunday morning. I’ve told you the way that I’ve operated and the way I’ve provided information in similar circumstances.

Q Certainly different —

Q Scott, has the vice president —

MR. MCCLELLAN: Is this on — Go ahead. Michael, go ahead.

Q Has the vice president always had a hunting license whenever he’s gone hunting? There was an item in one of the wire stories this morning that he had a license prior to November, but other stories said he goes every year to Texas. I have a follow-up as well.

MR. MCCLELLAN: Check with his office. I don’t have those facts.

It has also been reported (by CBS) that local law enforcement officials were barred from interviewing Darth about his “mishap.” The whitewashed sheriff’s press release is here.

Also, Darth was hunting quail illegally, and Cheney’s office blames his illegal hunting on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
