The Washington Post and the other suspect elite media are on top of this non-story. They smell scandal, and they mean to have one. This guy Wilson is all over television going on about I-dont-know-what. But he wants some satisfaction; this foreign policy advisor and contributor to Kerrys campaign, this intellectual snob, this self-serving chest thumper, does want satisfaction. Is there anyone who has seen this guy for more than two minutes think that he is a straight shooter, that he is really concerned about his third trophy-wifes well being, that he is really concerned about national security, etc.? Well, I dont. I think all this is a phony storm, nothing interesting will be discovered, and the investigation will go on and on, the President will be blamed more and more, and there will be no clarity, the so called scandal will just hang in the air.(Why doesnt he conduct his own internal investigation? Why doesnt he fire someone already? The justice department cant really do it right, so maybe we ought to have an independent counsel, and so on.) But it will have served a nicely partisan, albeit temporary purpose by creating the appearance of a scandal; run with it and see what mischief you can cause. This White House is not scandal ridden enough, lets get something going already! Maybe we can get Karl Rove in the process; and since he is the boy-genious behind all of Bushs electoral victories, if he is thrown out, maybe we have a chance to win in 2004! If there turn out to be facts in this matter that differ from this I will change my mind. For now, I am settled on this opinion. Here is Robert Novaks recent take on all this, since he is the one being held responsible for saying that it was a leak back in July. This stinks.
