If you knew anything about how that story broke, you wouldn't be able to say that with a straight face. Richard Armitage doesn't fit your theory. Don't ever criticize Killer Clown for embracing paranoid theories.

What? How doesn't Armitage fit? Armitage was Novak's source; how could he not fit? I don't even know what the "theory" is that you're accusing me of concocting.

Your theory is apparently that there was a politically motivated effort to out Valerie Plame in order to punish or discredit her husband after his op-ed challenging the administration's Iraq policy. If your theory is anything like all the other Plame-outing theories I've heard, Armitage doesn't fit it. If I'm mistaken about your theory and you think it is somehow consistent with the fact that Armitage was the source, go ahead and lay it on me.

It's ironic, IMO, that Bob Novak became such a target of the left during the past few years. He was always conservative, of course, but it wasn't at all uncommon for him to be critical of Republican politicians even when those politicians were nominally his ideological allies. He was much more willing to take a position in contrast with other conservatives than a lot of political commentators are. His opposition to the Iraq war from the start is a case in point. In fact, now that I think of it, Bob Novak himself doesn't even fit the common theories that there was a political conspiracy to out Valerie Plame. Neither the leaker (Armitage) nor the leakee (Novak) were committed defenders of the Bush Iraq policy. (I don't say this to try to revive our argument, it's just something that came to mind).

In any event, I think Washington could use more Bob Novaks whether they are conservative or liberal in personal pov.

But then, many big-time politicians didn’t like Novak. Pat Buchanan relates a priceless story of being with Richard Nixon in the mid-’60s in a high-school gym in Indiana. Nixon peeked through the stage curtain, finding Novak in the first row of the press section. “Look at him,” Nixon commanded. “That’s Bob Novak. That’s the enemy.”


If I were an adult in the mid-'60s, I would have glowed with pride had Nixon referred to me in that way. BTW, Buchanan's a douche too.

Unless it's in defense of one's own country on one's own soil any war is killing and dying for someone else's agenda. it's darnright evil if it's for someone else's war profiteering.

I reserve the right to extend that even farther if it's against the "people" I come from.

My heart condition makes your whole question moot anyway.
