Scott McClellan—A Turncoat Just Like His Mom

Former George W. Bush Press Secretary Scott McClellan has written a book critical of his former boss.

Mr. McClellan is a turncoat—Just like his mom.

Mr. McClellan’s mom is well-known here in Texas. Carole Keeton Strayhorn has run for office as a Democrat, a Republican, and as a third-party candidate.

Ms. Strayhorn served as Mayor of Austin as a Democrat, as Texas State Comptroller as a Republican, and then ran as an independent against a Republican incumbent for Governor of Texas in 2006.

She dropped and changed party affiliations to suit her ambitions.

If Mr. McClellan had a real problem with George W. Bush, he could have to resigned in protest.

Instead, he is making big money with a book.  

No loyalty to either President Bush or the American people.

Above you see a picture of some apples on a tree. Here we see that not only do the apples not fall far from the tree, in this case they are root and branch the same rotten fruit.  

Here is what it says in Matthew about trees and the fruit they bear—

You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.

Here is some information about apple trees.

  1. Man, don’t you know better than to talk about people’s momma’s?

  2. Hey—public figures get what they have coming!

  3. Scott McClellan is son of Carole Keeton Rylander McClellan Strayhorn. Daughter of Page Keeton, powerful head of the Texas State Bar as far back as the Kennedy assasination. Barr McClellan, Scott’s father, wrote about keeping the lid on LBJ’s knowledge of the Kennedy murder. Carole Strayhorn has fliped on political party sympathies many times, but GWB knew that when he asked Scott to be his spokesperson. Scott’s brother Mark McClellan is head of Medicare/Medicaid and before that worked high up within the FDA.

    These boys aren’t just ANYBODY. Their family has paid some heavy dues.

    Rove says that McClellan’s criticism of FEMA and the Katrina fiasco is unjustified, but Rove needs to answer what he knows about Oliver North’s refusal to answer Texas Representative Jack Brooks question concerning the altered purpose of FEMA under GWHB when Brooks zinged him at the Iran-Contra hearings.

    McClellan was a Bush insider when Joe Allbaugh, Governor Bush’s chief of staff, was trying to put the lid on the Texas’ Funeral Gate scandal which leaned on the appointment of Dick Cheney hunting partner Harry Whittington as the governor’s “enforcer”. The key Funeral Gate company, Houston’s Service Corporation Inc or SCI, was later “selected” as THE funeral company for the Katrina victims.

    McClellan was also aware of the Scooter Libby connection to Plame’s outing, with Richard Armitage taking the heat away from Rove and accepting the role of “loose lips Armitage”. Armitage took one for the Prez’s brain having dodged an earlier bullet…..one during the Perot/GHWB presidential showdown.

    Perot had teamed up with the most decorated Vietnam War Vet, Col Bo Gritz, to out Arimtage’s connection to the Iran-Contra style drug smuggling in Burma’s Golden Triangle. Gritz’s video of the outing is available on the web and though his whistle blowing was shut out of the mainline media, his story was told on the Morton Downey Jr. program.

    That, you may NOT know, brought on retribution from the Bush camp toward Mr. Perot and his family. He withdrew from the race citing threats to his children while the media spun the Perot decision as a the irrational personality of another Texas meglomaniac.

    Is McClellan looking for his fifteen minutes of fame? I think he is trying to distance himself from an eternity of infamy.
