Ari Fleischer, President Bush’s first press secretary and McClellan’s old boss, elaborated this morning on previous statements from several current and former Bush administration officials that “this is not the Scott I know.”

A ruthless, unethical, democracy-killing zombie. Sadly, that’s apparently not the case.”
