Today on Holden’s Obsession with the Gaggle

From Holden:

Little Scottie explains why Kerry is a low-down dirty hypocrite while the preznit is a saint:

Q But, Scott, the ad, back to that. Senator Kerry denounced the ad specifically, saying it’s not indicative of their — the way they feel about the Bush service in the National Guard. He specifically denounced the ad, which is something that they’re saying the Bush-Cheney campaign has not specifically done about the Swift Boats ad.

MR. McCLELLAN: Let’s be clear here. What the senator did was, he said one thing at the same time his campaign was doing another. His campaign went out there and essentially promoted this false negative attack at the same time Senator Kerry was saying he condemned it. The President has condemned all of this kind of activity, and he should join us in doing the same and calling for an end to all of it. Apparently he was against soft money before he was for it. And the President thought he got rid of all of this unregulated soft money activity when he signed the bipartisan campaign finance reforms into law. And so it’s another example of — the senator’s latest comments are another example of him saying one thing and doing another.

Later, Spanky Scottie announces that Donald Rumsfeld does not represent the administration:

Q Scott, was Secretary Rumsfeld speaking for the administration when he said that it should be a go slow approach to the 9/11 recommendations?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I think you’ve heard the President’s and Secretary Rumsfeld — that’s not all he said. He talked — he put it in the context of the current situation. We are a nation at war, and we have to — we have to move forward recognizing that we are — we are continuing to fight and win the war on terrorism.

And the President has made it clear that he wants to move forward quickly and responsibly. Actions we take in one area of our national security can have an impact in other areas of our national security. And so we must move forward in a deliberate, serious manner. The President is strongly committed to creating the National Intelligence Director, and we’re — Congress is working to address it, and we will continue working with Congress and move forward — to move forward in a quick and responsible manner.
