Lessons for Scotty
from WH Press Secretary Zeigler

From todays White House Press conference:

QUESTION: Scott, this is ridiculous. The notion that you're going to stand before us, after having commented with that level of detail, and tell people watching this that somehow you've decided not to talk.

You've got a public record out there. Do you stand by your remarks from that podium or not?

MCCLELLAN: I'm well aware, like you, of what was previously said. And I will be glad to talk about it at the appropriate time. The appropriate time is when the investigation...

Perhaps Scott McClellan should try this line from Nixon's embattled press secretary Ron Zeigler:
"This is the operative statement," Mr. Ziegler told reporters at one point. "The others are inoperative."

The good news for Scotty...Zeigler was one of the few top Nixon administration officials who was not indicted in the Watergate scandal.
The bad news.......Zeigler died at the fairly young age of 63 of a heart attack.
