From Holden's obsession with the gaggle at First Draft:

Q Has he apologized to you for telling you he is not involved?

MR. McCLELLAN: Helen, I'm not going to get into any private discussions.

Q He put you on the spot. He put your credibility on the line.

MR. McCLELLAN: And, Helen, I appreciate you all wanting to move forward and find the facts relating to this investigation. I want to know all the facts relating to the investigation.

Q Do you regret putting yourself out on a limb, Scott?

MR. McCLELLAN: I do want to talk about this, and we will talk about it once the investigation is complete.

I've never really understood why anyone would accept the job of WH press secretary--in any administration, you're essentially volunteering to be a crash test dummy--and in between the lines of stonewalling arrogance, I think I'm hearing lil' Scottie wondering why he took the job and pleading to his colleagues that he, too, is a victim here. Lied to by his bosses? Sure. Victim? Not a chance. How inconvenient for him that at least some of the gaggle have come out of their collective stupor to do their jobs for a change.
