Scott McClellan's Book

McClellan Finds Jon Stewart Tougher Than Helen Thomas

Scott McClellan's big new tell-all What Happened drops today — he popped into The Daily Show last night to dish with Stewart who immediately warned McClellan, "you're talking about Fight Club."

For all of the hype surrounding the charges McClellan levels at the Bush administration, he maintains, "there's a larger message . . . end the partisan warfare in Washington, DC."

He walks Stewart through the behind-the-scenes of creating the anti-Scott talking point, "he just doesn't sound like Scott." Then talk gets serious, (that special brand of funny-serious) and Stewart likens the deception over the war as the difference between "homicide" and "involuntary manslaughter." Wow.

Is the book really about partisan Washington? Is McClellan trying to change how Washington works? To see the second part of McClellan's Daily Show appearance, read more.

Are you going out to buy the book? It's out of stock on Amazon.com until June 29. Dick Cheney, for one, is not buying it — but I'm dying to read it.
