He's Just the White House Press Secretary, Don't Confuse Him
White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, caught without his talking points:
Q Al Gore is saying today that Cheney's comments on the election are sleazy and despicable and an effort to blackmail voters with fear. That's from Al Gore today -- Al Gore in response to Cheney's comments about another terrorist attack coming. If Kerry is elected -- Al Gore is calling Cheney's comments --
MR. MCCLELLAN: Consider the source.
Q He was Vice President, last I looked.
To which McClellan replied, "Uh, right. That guy." McClellan then pointed across the room, cried, "Look! It's someone who served with Bush in the National Guard!", and ran away.
