"There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who
dont have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements
with the boss or colleagues," Dole wrote in a message sent yesterday
morning. "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..."
"In my nearly 36 years of public service I've known of a few like
you," Dole writes, recounting his years representing Kansas in the
House and Senate. "No doubt you will 'clean up' as the liberal
anti-Bush press will promote your belated concerns with wild
enthusiasm. 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"
Dole assures McClellan that he won't read the book "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,
"That would have taken integrity and courage but then you would have
had credibility and your complaints could have been aired
objectively," Dole concludes. "Youre a hot ticket now, but dont you,
deep down, feel like a total ingrate?"
He signs the email simply: "BOB DOLE"
