Pressing the Secretary

Portland City Councilman Randy Leonard plays Scott McClellan to Mayor Sam Adams’s “Dick” Cheney in the new mayor’s sex/cover-up scandalé:

Leonard also feels that Adams used him to strengthen Adams’ lie.

“I feel disturbed that Sam allowed me to say the things I did as part of his campaign to deceive people,” Leonard says. “I’m not understanding how he took advantage of my friendship and my loyalty.”

“I stood at the White House briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the senior-most aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby,” McClellan wrote.

“There was one problem. It was not true.

“I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president’s chief of staff and the president himself.”

Just a matter of time until The Daily Show gets hold of this one….
