Dare any Democrat complain considering how silent they were about Clinton's pardons?

They will .. Loons have very short memories

Armitage, candid for a cabinet post if Kerry got elected, is done for.
He's toast, and will live in shame for the rest of his life.

Colin Powell is totally discredited, for knowing long before the Fitzgerald appointment, that Armitage was the leaker. He is totally discredited now. He can now avoid a political future for real, not just saying so in humble cliches.

Fitzgerald is now known by all as the buffoon that he is and was. Conservatives have known it all along. Some liberals still think he has credibility (good, let them keep this story alive).

Novak told it like it was regarding Armitage, revealing him as a nothing less than a traitor.

Meanwhile, Judith Miller stays quiet about it all rather than coming out with her version of the truth, meaning she realizes her total role in all this, and her time is jail, was a total waste -- to her and to us.

The Wilson's are white trash, in a league with the Clinton's (yep, both of the Clinton's, not just Bill).

Now what about Plame & Wilson's lawsuit claiming Rove, Cheney, Libby, and Armitage "violated their constitutional rights in retaliation for Wilson's criticism of President Bush."? Are they just going to put their tails between their Jackass legs and drop the suit or are they going to let this howler reach court? Wouldn't you like to hear that testimony. Bwa ha haaaa! Maybe they'll settle it by paying the accused $400,000 to forget about the whole thing. Maybe they'll just sue hapless Armitage now.

I'm shocked that the Daily News printed this. The libs there must have been asleep at the switch to let this one slip by them. Good article.

I used to see her as pretty sweet looking. Now I see her as ugly.

It's funny how your opinion of a person's physical appearance can change as that person's character is revealed over time. And that works in both directions - - a person you get to know as a truly terrific and generous person looks better to you as time goes by, and a person who you learn is selfish and devious looks worse to you as time goes by.

Nope, she has never appealed to me much. While I do agree with the rest of yer comment I just never saw her as all that atractive-even in the first pic I saw of her.

And yes, I guess I do see her as far less atractive now.

It's an amazing thing. I am pretty sure that the bitter, socialist Democrats who dominate the Daily News' editorial pages fastened their seatbelts, gritted their teeth, and told themselves, "This makes us look more balanced, this makes us look more balanced, this makes us look more balanced," when Christine M. Flowers' column crossed their desks.


On the other hand, I have noticed over the years that the Philadelphia Daily News actually does a fair, objective job of reporting the news. They report the news straight up, whether it hurts or helps their party. That paper has a whole lot more integrity than the Inquirer, believe me. I have absolutely no respect for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Ditto on the Inquirer. I've given up reading either of them except the sports page. Probably why I didn't realize the Daily News is a little balanced.

That's something I've been wondering about. Do we know for sure how involved Powell was with Armitage's leak, or how much he knew about it?

That had to be an op-ed. The Daily News hasn't the conscience to write an editorial like that.

It didn't take long for a "so what?" attitude to develop...

No... this is bigger than Armitage and the Wilsons. There is much more to the story but the libs would probably prefer to end it on this note. They don't want a closer look at Rockefeller's involvement, or the Alamoudi family, or Jefferson aka Mr. "Freezerbank", or Marc Rich, or Soros, or the links in Africa, or the UN, or the Qadeer Khan network and where all those tendrils lead, most particularly they don't want it now on the eve of conflict with Iran.

We know it is bigger than just Wilson and Plame and Armitage- at the same exact time this spin was gearing up with the Wilson's as figureheads in the states, the same sort of actions were being taken by antiwar radicals in Italy, the UK and in Australia. I personally don't think Democrats are that well coordinated to pull off that much nonsense single handedly.

Fitzgerald is on one of the most critical of all terrorist investigations- the financial nexus between Iraq and al Qaeda, the terror charities, and the nuclear proliferation network, and no doubt others unnamed. The Saar group, Global Relief Foundation, Iraq's front group network, the Holy Land Foundation, Hamas and Hezbollah- if he can be sullied in the trivial matter of leaking the name of a pencil pushing media star then it may be to the advantage of those financial networks under investigation.

bttt ... The leaked 'get Bush' memo says that the 'vice chairman' was the "FIRST" to request the FBI to investigate the Niger...

How would the writer of this memo know who was the FIRST as it has been continually claimed that the CIA requested the investigation?

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,102258,00.html

"......In the meantime, even without a specifically authorized independent investigation, we continue to act independently when we encounter foot-dragging on the part of the majority. For example, the FBI Niger investigation was done solely at the request of the vice chairman; we have independently submitted written questions to DoD; and we are preparing further independent requests for information. ......"

In the interest of fairness and accuracy, you'd expect that news to hit the cover of every mainstream paper and magazine that profited for months from assassinating the character of Karl Rove and Dick Cheney.

Maybe Katie Couric would demonstrate what a treasure she really is and read the entire Washington Post editorial on-air.

That is an excellent suggestion, but I doubt that the MSM will do it.

The only palpable lies in this whole flim-flam have been those of Mr. Wilson, yet Mr. Libby, whose memory seems to only vary from that of some reporters', is being prosecuted for perjury and under that dead-stupid lying-to-a-federal-officer law?

O'Donnell to apologize for being... A LIAR! CREEPY LIAR!

I don't watch much Cable News or TV.
Is this Hollywood nut still around the pundit circuit?
