Bush the deserter: White House stonewalls 

Scott "Sucker MC" McClellan doesn't answer the question, not once, but twice

Q Scott, you expressed some outrage this morning that Democrats are questioning whether President Bush shirked his military duty with the Texas Air National Guard. Is the White House trying to come up with any records or any eye-witnesses to demonstrate that he did show up for his last two years in Alabama?

MR. McCLELLAN: Terry, I would just say that it was a shame that this issue was brought up four years ago during the campaign, and it is a shame that it is being brought up again. The President fulfilled his duties. The President was honorably discharged.

Q Scott, can I follow that up?

MR. McCLELLAN: Do you have a follow-up?

Q Well, the question actually was whether or not you're trying to find any eye-witnesses or any records to prove --

MR. McCLELLAN: Terry, this was addressed four years ago, and like I said, it was a shame that it came up then and it's a shame that some are bringing it up again.

It is a shame. It's even more of a shame that the SCLM didn't cover this in election 2002, but of course they were too busy yammering about Gore's earth tones. It's still more a shame that the SCLM is just asking Bush about the records, instead of, say, FOIA-ing them, or interviewing actual members of Bush's unit.
