UPDATED Dole Blasts "Miserable Creature" McClellan
When you look at the life and death struggle of truly steadfast and upright public servants like Tony Snow--and then you contrast that with the depths to which lesser men like Snow's despicable predecessor McClellan are willing to sink for cheap publicity and 15 minutes of celebrity in the "faux-fashionable" world of the Bush-hating Left--well it makes you want to do and say the kind of thing that Bob Dole had the guts to do and say.
There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don't have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues. No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits, and spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique.
In my nearly 36 years of public service I've known of a few like you. No doubt you will "clean up" as the liberal anti-Bush press will promote your belated concerns with wild enthusiasm. When the money starts rolling in you should donate it to a worthy cause, something like, "Biting The Hand That Fed Me." Another thought is to weasel your way back into the White House if a Democrat is elected. That would provide a good set up for a second book deal in a few years.
I have no intention of reading your "exposé" because if all these awful things were happening, and perhaps some may have been, you should have spoken up publicly like a man, or quit your cushy, high profile job. That would have taken integrity and courage but then you would have had credibility and your complaints could have been aired objectively. You're a hot ticket now but don't you, deep down, feel like a total ingrate?
Well done, Senator Dole.
And Tony, wherever you are...I don't pray that often--but I am praying for you. Hang in there and fight like hell.
