Remember in All the President’s Men when Ben Bradlee says that the White House has issued a non-denial denial? Well, here is another one. The cover story on today’s NY Times reports on John McCain’s gambling problem:
Mr. McCain‚Äôs spokesman, Tucker Bounds, would not discuss the senator‚Äôs night of gambling at Foxwoods, saying: ‚ÄúYour paper has repeatedly attempted to insinuate impropriety on the part of Senator McCain where none exists ‚Äî and it reveals that your publication is desperately willing to gamble away what little credibility it still has.‚Äù
A non-denial denial!
