Only two problems;

Courtesy Michele Malkin:

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, why, all of a sudden, if he (Richard Clarke) had all these grave concerns, did he not raise these sooner? This is one-and-a-half years after he left the administration. And now, all of a sudden, he’s raising these grave concerns that he claims he had. And I think you have to look at some of the facts. One, he is bringing this up in the heat of a presidential campaign. He has written a book and he certainly wants to go out there and promote that book

Good question Scott.  Got an answer?


An excellent¬† bit of digging by Michelle. It occurred to me earlier this evening as I read some of the reports that the press was busy ginning this thing up rather like the Clarke case back in 2004.¬† I think the answers are rather clear about why he’s decided to push this nonsense, now;

  1. He’s looking at the rest of his life not going very far politically, and so decides to cash in on his experience. It’s all he has left.
  2. If you’re going to sell a political book, the way to make the biggest splash is to tell the looney left exactly what they want to hear, which is they’ve been correct all along. It’s a surefire method to get it in the press, thereby maximizing sales.

One really must wonder; who got to him with the checkbook?
