Was Scott McClellan brainwashed? This interview with Ari Fleischer which is clearly part of the White House’s spin/damage control seems to promote the notion that “this is not the Scott McClellan that we knew.” This point is being repeated by the Usual Suspects again and again. Fleischer and Company provide us with two “explanations” for the strange behavior of their former comrade. First, there is the idea that the publisher/editor of his book may have changed his original draft and inserted all the terrible stuff about Bush. But then there seems to be the implication that if that didn’t happen, well, perhaps…who knows…did the guy go nuts? Is it money? Mm…or maybe we have here a case of all the anti-war types applying the Ludovico technique on poor Scott. Mitt Romney could provide us with some insights about all of this based on his dad’s experience.
