Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow: Scott McClellan Announces Resignation

by Pamela Leavey

Scottie McClellan announced today he is resigning. Reports of the resignation scene echoed a Hollywood love story, as Bush and Scottie recited their dramatic lines on the White House South Lawn, just as Bush was boarding a helicopter at a start a trip to Alabama…

McClellan, who has parried especially fiercefully with reporters on Iraq and on intelligence issues, told Bush: “I have given it my all sir and I have given you my all sir, and I will continue to do so as we transition to a new press secretary.”

Bush said McClellan had “a challenging assignment.”

“I thought he handled his assignment with class, integrity,” the president said. “It’s going to be hard to replace Scott, but nevertheless he made the decision and I accepted it. One of these days, he and I are going to be rocking in chairs in Texas and talking about the good old days.”

I can see it now, Bush and Scottie rocking in their chairs at Bush’s Crawford, Texas ranch, reminiscing over the spin and the lies that the Press Puppet perpetuated for his hero…

The resignation scene script is available here.

  1. Scottie sucked from day one. He was the worst Press Secretary I’d ever seen honestly. There will be no applause from the WH press corps when he gives his last briefing unlike when Clinton’s Press Secretary stepped down.

  2. Kinda funny….each one lasts a shorter time then the previous one…

  3. The replacement is going to be even more interesting.

    Job description:
    Must be able to lie under full press coverage.

  4. Ginny

    We should add while stroking phony reporters…
