MR. McCLELLAN MCCLELLAN: The sky is, using the colors of the rainbow, between indigo and green.
Q Are you saying the sky is blue?

MR. McCLELLAN: I think it is just what I said it is.

Q You can say the sky is blue.
MR. McCLELLAN: I've described it as best as I can, and I wish you'd just print it how I say it.
Q I think the American people want a straight answer.
MR. McCLELLAN: I think the American people are less concerned with what light wavelengths the atmosphere reflects than it is about the President's plan that has given us the greatest economic growth in 30 years.

Bonus: name that politician!

  1. If the question is, literally, "is the sky blue?," the answer is why, no! Of course not! The sky doesn't actually have any color, and it depends on how you, the subject, is looking at it, not to mention what time of day it is, what sorts and sizes of clouds, and that sort of thing. If the question is, normally, does the sky appear as blue to most people, then golly, of course it does!
  2. We have reason to suspect the sky is mauve.
  3. The sky is not blue.
