Go ahead, Les.
Q Scott, a two-part. I'd be very grateful if you could give us a clarification of the President's statement in Cleveland, "I made it clear, I'll make it clear again, that we will use military might to protect our ally, Israel." And my question: This does not mean that we will withhold such military might until after Israel is nuclear-bombed, does it?
MR. McCLELLAN: Well, Les, I think that if you're bringing up the issue relating to Iran and its pursuit of nuclear weapons, we are pursuing a diplomatic solution to that matter. I think you're jumping way ahead of things at this point --
Q No, the clarification -- we will protect Israel, we won't wait until after they're bombed.
MR. McCLELLAN: I don't think there's anything to clarify. The President has made that very clear before. They are a great friend and good ally, and the President --
Q So it will be before they are bombed.
MR. McCLELLAN: -- has publicly expressed that view before.
Q Two months before the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6 to 3 in the case of Lawrence vs. Texas, laws against sodomy are unconstitutional, Senator Rick Santorum told the AP, if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual gay sex in your home, then you have the right to bigamy, incest, and adultery, you have the right to anything. And my question: Does the President disagree with this Republican Senator and will he ask the Justice Department to oppose the pro-polygamy lawsuit, Bronson vs. Swenson, or not?
MR. McCLELLAN: Les, you might want to check with the Justice Department on what involvement they may have in any particular case. I don't know about --
Q I want to know what the President -- does he agree with Santorum?
MR. McCLELLAN: I think you've heard the President's views.

What Drives A Man To Ask Questions?
I always find Les' questions entertaining. But really, why do I get the feeling that there is some kind of subversive agenda laced through out his questions? Even so, inquiring minds want to know what these nut bags are thinking. Don't you?
