GLENN: Hang on just a second. This is breaking news. We should have started it the right way.
DAN: This is breaking urgent news on the Glenn Beck program.
STU: That's right. Thank you for that wonderful introduction. Right now I'm in Washington and we're watching the congress at work. They realize we are in an energy crisis and they realize that people are paying a lot of money for gas. It's really weighing on people's personal budgets and their pocket books, if they carry them. And right now, Glenn, they are doing that by, of course, the one step that congress is allowed to take under the Constitution which is interviewing Scott McClellan about his new book.
VOICE: Do you know what steps were taken by the White House to conduct an investigation into the internal leak?
GLENN: Are we talking about an oil leak here? What kind of leak? One of the refineries that is leaking right now that is causing this oil?
STU: Well, Scott McClellan wrote in his book about that Valerie Plame thing. So... thus the hearings. Hold on. Listen.
VOICE: -- sentence. Now, this would seem -- well, do you regard this as in any way in violation of the President's pledge to find out all the information he could and making public about --
STU: That means a million barrels of oil have been found.
GLENN: Well, how is this finding oil?
VOICE: It does undermine our system of justice in my view.
STU: Yes, yes. Do you hear that?
GLENN: I don't know what you're --
STU: That means ANWR is open.
GLENN: No, I think this is -- I think this is really just about the Scooter Libby thing.
STU: No, he's got a new book out. Listen to this.
VOICE: He did say anything that was involved in this -- I said on his behalf no one would be on this --
STU: You know what that means, Glenn.
GLENN: No, I --
STU: We can now drill off the coast of Florida. In fact, all of that gas is already to the pumps. You are probably down to, like, $2.50 a gallon right now if you check outside.
GLENN: But Stu, I really do believe this doesn't have anything to do with oil.
STU: No, no. Listen, listen, listen.
VOICE: I do not know that. I do not make that claim and I do not have the information to know whether or not that was the thinking. I had already left the White House by the time he commuted Scooter Libby.
STU: Oil on the continental shelf is now available to be drilled. See, he's switching to oil technology.
VOICE: Let me, on behalf of some members of the committee apologize to the aspersions of your motives instead of questioning --
STU: (Inaudible). He's nonconcerned about the evidence of Scott McClellan.
GLENN: Yeah, now that he's got a book out. This is amazing. This is absolutely amazing. What is up with us! This is absolutely incredible. I can't take it anymore. We'll go back to Stu in Washington maybe a little later on in the program. Stu, are you back in the studio yet?
STU: Yeah, Glenn, I'm here. Thank God that oil shale has opened up.
GLENN: Amtrak is really fast.
