Talking Points Memo explains it this way:
"Mehlman was asked about the LAT story in his appearance today on CNN. It is a model of saying nothing while seeming to deny everything, yet still managing to stick a few shivs in your opponents, so I'm going to post the entire exchange".
...and how Mehlman makes shit up.
...and via the Daily Muck, how Mehlman fires people because Abramoff says so.
