Someone needs to be proofing Scott McClellan's cue cards before he reads them aloud in the White House Press Briefing Room.
A Republican White House spokesman with sense -- or at least cojones (as W might say) -- would have simply replied to the reporter who asked about the Bennett kerfluffle, "This is a nonstory as far we are concerned. Why don't you all get a life and a real job instead of parrotting the press releases from the NAACP and the DNC?"
That this White House didn't have the nerve to back Bennett given all of the cover Bennett has given them on the War on Terror and the Iraq War, the fact that he didn't entirely agree with the bloated No Child Left Behind Act, yet didn't go out to make mischief for the new Administration, that he has worked tirelessly on behalf of conservative Republican candidates to make sure President Bush has a controlling majority in Congress, shows how badly disconnected Bush's "B Team" really is.
