Remember the other day when people got momentarily distracted by erstwhile PonyPenPal™ Jeff Gannon's coy claim that he "knew Scott [McClellan] better than any other White House correspondent or Washington reporter"?
Maybe Jeff got a little nervous about the response? Here's the only sentence which matters from Jeffy's latest blog post (whoops, I forgot to link to it):
Scott knew nothing about my personal life, nor did anyone at the White House.
And for once, I think he's being honest! I never bought any of the Gannon conspiracy theories (hey, look through my archives if you doubt me). I was always sure he was merely a hack and an idiot, not a "plant."
But then, of course, Jeff goes that extra mile to try and claim a little extra absolution from not being mentioned in McClellan's book:
I am in no way disappointed not to have been mentioned in Scott McClellan’s book. In fact, I am pleased. The liberal slanders of “fake reporter”, “administration shill” and “press plant” are rendered null and void as the result of McClellan’s silence. For all of its bitter whining, flawed premises and inaccurate conclusions, McClellan’s book is a vindication for Jeff Gannon.
Ha, ha! Vindication for the "plant" part, Jeff, but not for "prostitute" part*! Nice try!
*Or, obviously, for the "douchebag" part. Or the "pretending to be a Marine" part.
