He is now a Senior Adviser to a global technology firm and a Washington Communications Strategist, but former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan is helping a small Texas business this Thanksgiving.
When McClellan resigned as White House Press Secretary and was replaced by Fox commentator Tony Snow, Texan Ryland Sanders must have thought his “Scottie Says” Web site would be defunct. An outgrowth of Sanders’ church-sign generator business, “Says-It” lets you make cartoons with photos of politicos, and “Scottie Says” lets you generate cartoons using photos of McClellan. You can even get your cartoons made into refrigerator magnets.
But Scott McClellan is using the traditional Thanksgiving news-drought to publicize his forthcoming book, revealing that President Bush, Vice President Cheney, I. Louis “Scooter” Libby and White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card lied to him about leaking the identity of CIA Agent Valerie Plame. This should revive interest in “Scottie Says.”
So after you take those crayon drawings of pilgrims off the fridge, think about doing some artwork of your own. A nice Scott McClellan magnet, maybe. The perfect stocking-stuffer.
