Quite Frankly…

John Podesta made Ken Mehlman look like a total jackass on Meet the Press yesterday. Actually, Mehlman made himself look like a total jackass, as usual, and Podesta just sort of put a period at the end of the sentence. I thought this was his best line on Rove:
And quite frankly, the President said he would fire leakers, not lawbreakers, and I think if he’s a man of his word, he’ll take that seriously.
Good point. Of course, the president hasn’t really proven himself to be a man of his word, so I don’t think I’ll hold my breath.

All Mehlman could do the whole time was regurgitate barely coherent sentence fragments pieced together from old campaign speeches while his eyes darted around like a coke fiend snorting up in the gents’ at the Policemen’s Ball. Quite an unimpressive performance, even by his standards.

Crooks and Liars has the video, and Think Progress has more, too.
