What's so infuriating about Bush sycophants like McClellan and others who have "seen the light" is that they had ready access to all of the people they now say were lying about the whole thing.  They were right there together, with access to information that the rest of us didn't have.  And yet, we figured it out as it was happening, and screamed and hollered and pulled our hair and pounded on the table and threw things because no one would listen.  Scotty nor any of them listened.

What really pisses me off is now that Scotty has come to realize the truth that we've been saying all along, he refuses to even admit that we existed then and that we were right and he was wrong then.  The last thing he will ever say, a more important truth than what he is saying now, is the overwhelimg truth, "You were right."

Scotty's too late, too little book is sophomoric.  He ignores all of us who have been telling him what he has just now come to know, and, sophomorically, thinks he's the only one who knows it and feels compelled to inform us lesser beings of what we need to know.  It's completely beyond his ability to grasp the fact that we already knew.

We, who have been saying what Scotty is just now saying, will never be acknowledged as having been right.  All we can do is listen, nod our heads knowingly at Scotty's obtuseness, and accept the fact that Scotty, with Bushlike arrogance, still cannot conceive of the fact that there are people who are smarter than he is.  After all, he just wrote a book proving that he is ignorant of that very fact.

If Scotty ever learns that the earth is an oblate sphere, look for another book informing us of that astounding fact.
