Cookie Cutter Comments

Dan Froomkin at WashingtonPost.com has a great example of how Presidential mouthpieces can say a lot without saying anything. He takes a simple, clear question and then shows how Spokesman Scott McClellan pieced together answers using stock phrases. Click on any sentence, and Mr Froomkin takes you to other times Mr McClellan used the same phase to answer a question at the White House briefing. (WashPost)
