And Don't Even Get Me Started About the President's Drunk Driving…


The Chicago Tribune reports a startling discovery: Scott McClellan has a sense of humor.

White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, facing another day of questioning about initial delays in the reporting of Cheney's accidental shooting and wounding of a hunting companion in Texas, was looking forward to a more upbeat event today: The arrival of the University of Texas football team, 2005 NCAA champions, on the South Lawn of the White House, a festival in Burnt Orange and White.

"The orange that they're wearing is not because they're concerned that the vice president may be there,"' McClellan joked at the start of this morning's press gaggle at the White House.

But "that's why I'm wearing it," McClellan, sporting an orange and gray tie for his hometown Austin, Tex., Longhorns, added with a laugh.
