Playing Politics with the Good People Of Kentucky

Let's take a tally of the political shenanigans I have been tracking as of late. First, we know that the W, Rove and Co is not above using school age children to play politics. We also know they are not above using soldiers (both alive and dead) to play politics. Now we see they are not above using the good people of the state of Kentucky to play politics.

Have a gander at a reporter who is trying to trap Scott into revealing the real reason the W, Rove and Co propaganda machine is spending hard earned taxpayer dollars to travel there:

Q How much did the congressional race down here in Kentucky play in your decision to go here?

MR. McCLELLAN: Congressional race? This was a decision made as part of our continuing efforts to engage the American people in a dialogue about our strategy for victory in Iraq. I haven't heard any -- I haven't heard any discussion about that. I mean, he's here to talk -- today to talk to people in Kentucky about the situation in Iraq and the way ahead in 2006 and what to expect --

Q Why Kentucky?

MR. McCLELLAN: -- and the progress we're making. Well, he travels all over the country. And like I said, this is an opportunity to talk to the people in Kentucky about our strategy that we have in place for winning in Iraq. And this is part of a continuing dialogue. He's going to continue talking about the war on terrorism and how Iraq is central to prevailing in that war on terrorism.

Q Is this going to be similar to the --

MR. McCLELLAN: And he also wants to hear from some real people out in America about what's on their minds and any questions they may have about our strategy for victory --

Q So it's very similar to a town meeting --

MR. McCLELLAN: I think that -- I think that's a fair way to describe it, I mean, kind of engage in a town hall-type discussion with people in the audience.

Q Are you going to have more of these?

MR. McCLELLAN: I'm sorry?

Q Are we going to see more --

MR. McCLELLAN: He talks to the American people in a variety of ways.
