Ah, finally ... the "L" word.

Yes, this is New York Times columnist Frank Rich finally calling the president (using carefully-selected terminology, of course) a liar.

It's a good thing it has nothing to do with a blowjob, else the right-wing screech harpies, howler monkeys, attack poodles and sock puppets would undoubtedly be working themselves into an absolute froth right about now.

But it's just about torture so ... it's all good. Carry on.

: While it may be unseemly to be so obsessed with White House press gaggles, I can't wait for the next Li'l Scottie gaggle to see if any member of the Press Corpse can do anything with this recent McClellan bullshit line:

Q I'd like you to clear up, once and for all, the ambiguity about torture. Can we get a straight answer? The President says we don't do torture, but Cheney --

MR. McCLELLAN: That's about as straight as it can be.

Q Yes, but Cheney has gone to the Senate and asked for an exemption on --

MR. McCLELLAN: No, he has not. Are you claiming he's asked for an exemption on torture? No, that's --

Q He did not ask for that?

MR. McCLELLAN: -- that is inaccurate.

That's about as unambiguous as it's possible for Scottie to get. So ... who's going to step up to the plate and give Scottie a good swift one to the nads over this?
