The White House Press Gaggle was all over Press Secretary Scott McClellan today after John McCain's remarks about the campaign ad criticizing John Kerry's military service. McCain feels the Bush Administration should condemn the attack by the 527 group.
McClellan's response? Asking Kerry to join President Bush in not accepting money from 527 groups. He didn't address McCain's charges at all. SOP at the White House.
Scott McClellan felt so strongly about this that he referred to 527s as "shadowy groups" three times and uttered the term "soft money" eleven times during the press conference. Today's Gaggle lasted only eight minutes.
