A Deprogrammer or an Exorcist?

Like any family with a member who has gone off the rails, the Bushies are beside themselves with worry about poor Scott McClellan.

"It's sad," Dana Perino pouts. "This is not the Scott we knew."

"This doesn't sound like Scott," Karl Rove headshakes. "It really doesn't. Not the Scott McClellan I have known for a long time...sounds like somebody else, it sounds like a left-wing blogger."

Ari Fleischer is "heartbroken."

Former White House Counsel Dan Bartlett is dazed. "It's almost like we're witnessing an out-of-body experience," he says. "We're hearing from a completely different person we didn't have any insight into."

Now that McClellan has developed some kind of truth addiction, White House loyalists are holding a public intervention, not sure whether to consult a deprogrammer or an exorcist to bring back the good old lying Scott they used to know.

Rove echoes every family member who has gone through such an experience, wondering if he should have detected some sign of trouble.

"If he had these moral qualms," Rove says, "he should have spoken up about them. And frankly I don't remember him speaking up about these things. I don't remember a single word."

If only they had known, they could have increased the doses of Kool-Aid.

Could a transcript from Cheney's Energy Task Force be far off? (It's not coming from Kenny Boy).

As the ship sinks, the rats jump, but there is no lifeline for Scotty.

Turdblossom will get his pardon along with dozens of others from Bush.

Scotty needs to seek forgiveness, not for crimes, but for being the tool that he remains.

The boss may still be unhappy about the Jeff Gannon affair.

That line made me laugh out loud.

Poor, poor heartbroken Ari Fleischer...
