I'll be sure to watch this.

Now will O'Donnel also reveal the motive? I wonder...

Karl sure gets around. Shame on him for revealing what was one of the worst kept secrets in DC.

It's all Bush's fault.


No, wait, maybe Pat Buchannan was the Deep Throat.

LMBO!!!
Lawrence O'Donnel. Har! Haven't heard that raving scumbag's name in a long time - - I'm surprised he surfaced. He would LOVE to get called into the grand jury, get his name out there, show the public he's still alive, etc.

It could be true, it could be false, but if it is not a crime - it has no impact. The key to whether it was a crime or not is in her status at the time the disclosure was made, and whether the information (her identity and employment as a covert CIA operative) had been made public (albeit with less dissemination than in Novak's column) earlier. Only Drudge would focus on the "who" to the exclusion of the "what".

To be honest with you, no one's going to be surprised if he was the source of the leak. Even more importanly, nobody cares.

Even if this is true, oh well, too bad. W is in office for another term. Let Karl take one for the team. Resign and retire and enjoy life. And, BTW Karl, thanks for giving us 8 years of George W. Bush and keeping the Dims out of the White House.

It would be political trouble for Rove if true, but major egg
on Lawrence O'Donnel if it isn't. If it was Rove, that would
have probably disclosed a lot earlier.

If true,Yeah,Big time, but I don't think so, We will see, I just don't see reporters going to jail for Rove. Kerry would had have a Hell of a Shot with that Info back in 2004.

Ask O'Donnell -- who, once again, opened his mouth while failing to engage his brain (assuming it's still functional).

No, everyone will focus on the "who" to the exclusion of the "what" if it truly is Rove. The MSM and the Dems will be screaming from the mountaintops, calling for resignations, talking about impeachment. I realize this is no different than what they do any other day, but they'll be doing it over this for a while.

All in all, it's no big deal if it was Rove, IMO, except that it will be bad PR. I don't think there is a criminal case to be made.

What's Rove's bio, besides political guru to the President. For instance, is he a social conservative, is he married with kids?

Nobody knows. Rove has been on double secret probation since junior high school.

If I ever wanted this Karl Rove to be arrested for anything, it would not be over THIS.

It would be over ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION allowed unfettered for over four years at his political suggestion and influence, for which I'd like to see this guy frog-marched out of the West Wing or the Old Executive Office Building.

No body needed to out Plame-hells bells-even she was probably partially aware of who she was.....is.

Aparently she wasn't as important as the MSM and the Lunatic left wish us to believe she was.....is. Because, despite all the publicity she has been given, she still is-not was.

Yeah O'Donnel lost it so bad that MSNBC had to give a formal apology the night after he appeared and he's pretty much dropped off the face of the earth till now.

The swift vets sent him and Susan Estritch over the edge.

If it really is Rove, it will be big trouble. Most likely nothing will happen as long as Repubs hold the government, but as soon as Dims ever take power again Rove will be indicted right away.

Why would Karl Rove do that and also who would care?
It was an open secret that she was CIA in the social circles.
On top of that she made a donation to Gore's campaign in 2000 using her CIA front company. Talk about the spies who couldn't shoot straight.
Also Rove isn't that stupid. Given that Time Magazine is going to turn over their notes and blow whoever did it I suspect that O'Donnell will be eating a lot of Crow before it's all over with. The guy is a total Moron.

Since there is no way to confirm this, I say O'Donnell is simply being a partisan bleephead.

Rove married a young woman named Valerie Wainright, whose family was in the Bush social circle in Houston. (The marriage didn't last long, and Rove remarried in 1986; he and his wife, Darby, have one son.)

I saw a post by one of the DUmmies an hour or more ago about this. I Goooooogled etc, to try to find a link but was unable to do so.

I would find it astounding if it is in fact Rove, but ol' Lawrence O'Donnel is sticking his neck on the chopping block if it isn't

PREDICTION: Cooper's notes will probably be sealed as part of the grand jury evidence. No one will be charged, besides possibly Cooper and Miller going to jail for contempt. The notes will never be revealed. So O'Donnel can make these claims and not have to prove them.

I would be. Although Robert Novak has not revealed exactly who the leaker was, I do remember him saying that his source did not come from the White House.
