â€œNo matter what went wrong, she was somehow able to keep her hands cleanâ€
– Scott McClellan on Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
In true Diana Ross “Heads Will Roll!” style, former White House press secretary Scott McClellan’s new memoir, â€œWhat Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washingtonâ€™s Culture of Deception,â€ has tongues wagging since it is the first critical/negative memoir about the Bush Administrator from one of Bush’s most trusted staff members. The tone of the book can be judged by the chapter names: â€œThe Permanent Campaign,â€ â€œDeniability,â€ â€œTriumph and Illusion,â€ â€œRevelation and Humiliationâ€ and â€œOut of Touch.â€
Sadly, but not surprisingly, we can’t find it on Amazon.com. Honestly, in a few weeks, we won’t be surprised if we can’t find Scott McClellan. No word on when it will be out, but expect this to be our summer read.
