Is Ken Mehlman Lying About Rove Scandal

Posted by Bob Brigham

"At one point, on CNN, Wolf Blitzer asked Mehlman if he had attended meetings at the White House on how to deal with Wilson. Suddenly, the voluble Mehlman constricted. "I don't recall those meetings occurring," he said. Has the prosecutor inquired about such meetings and their participants?"

In that exchange, anyone who has ever confronted a liar -- and that includes every parent whose child has fibbed, every teacher who's had a pupil turn in a late assignment, every staffer who's worked for a politician, and every prosecutor who's asked a suspect for an alibi -- can see the wheels turning and the tongue forking.

That is why Rove and McClellan aren't going to be the only ones to fall. There Administration is engaging in a cover-up, a cover-up of treason. The Left Coaster suggests:

Accordingly, I propose that no White House spokesman or GOP talking head should be allowed to spout off to any newspaper reporter or TV personality on any subject without first answering these simple questions:

* When were the White House meetings?
* Who attended?
* What was said?
* Who said it?

If no reporter or talk show host or screaming-heads TV personality is enterprising enough to get answers to these few simple questions, the American media may as well be pronounced D.O.A.
