From The Boston Globe:
So Bob Dole, how do you really feel about Scott McClellan’s tell-all book about his days in the White House?
The former senator and presidential nominee fired off an email — first reported by The Politico — today to the former White House press secretary, who has been all over television promoting his book.
“There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don’t have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues. No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits, and spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique.
“When the money starts rolling in you should donate it to a worthy cause, something like, ‘Biting The Hand That Fed Me.’ ” Another thought is to weasel your way back into the White House if a Democrat is elected. That would provide a good set up for a second book deal in a few years.”
“I have no intention of reading your ‘exposé’ because if all these awful things were happening, and perhaps some may have been, you should have spoken up publicly like a man, or quit your cushy, high profile job. That would have taken integrity and courage but then you would have had credibility and your complaints could have been aired objectively.”
“You’re a hot ticket now but don’t you, deep down, feel like a total ingrate?”
Yeah, Scotty-poo! Don’t be ragging on Chimpy! Go get an honorable job, like shilling for pharmaceutical companies so old men can get boners or lobbying for Dubai!
