We have a policy of not caring very much what former male hooker and GOP White House “reporter” Jeff Gannon (aka James Guckert) says about anything. His time has passed, and he’s not a terribly credible source. But when a former male hooker (read our story here), who suddenly appeared in the White House a month before we invaded Iraq, and used to get called on by name by McClellan and George Bush, starts talking about how he knew the White House press secretary “better than everyone else,” it still raises some questions that deserve an answer. Gannon/Guckert just wrote this on his Web site:
What I hear about the book does not sound like the Scott McClellan I knew for two years. I can say without fear of contradiction, that I knew Scott better than any other White House correspondent or Washington reporter.
Then again, if Gannon/Guckert wants anyone to listen to him about this or any other issue, he should explain just how and why he knew McClellan so well and stop playing games. Otherwise we’re just going to ignore him for another year.
