...breathlessly said that Valerie Plame will be telling her story for the first time!

LOL. Quite.

But seriously, what do they think she has to say? Sure, all this started with her getting her husband to go on that trip, but beyond that, hasn't *she* been as much a spectator as anyone else? In the end, it's not really about her. I can't imagine what new information they might think she has.

I hope Rep. Patrick McHenry is there....he should be unafraid to ask a hard question of Plame.

Who whispered something like, "She's rethinking her decision to testify?"

Time to see if the Republicans have a spine and a set of balls! My bet is they will sit back and let the dims and plame bash Bush and the his administration.....

They'll be more softballs thrown than at a company picnic.

Waxman looks euphoric in the Chairman's chair. He has been waiting twelve long years for this "rightful" place to sit!

I wonder if the code pinkos ther are the same ones who got arrested yesterday at an Appropriations Committee hearing?

I wonder if Rep Watson is wearing pink in solidarity or in ignorance?

I have two questions:

1) By calling this testimony, does this mean she will be put under oath?

2) And were there conditions on her appearing? Getting the questions ahead of time, guarantees that certain subjects were off the table, that kind of thing.

Anyone heard?

And the Plames, in the form of Valerie and Joe...once again urinate upon our collective feet and declare it is but rain.

This hearing is going to help her lying book and movie.

Meanwhile it is OUR children who are imperiled by the scam these two worthwhile nothings wrought upon this country with their lies about Saddam.

I'd be heartened if I thought the pubbies would be asking the right question but pubbies...hey, their forte is political cowardice.

I want to punch that broad...look at the smirky smile.

It all started when her husband was ALLOWED to WRITE/LIE about his "secret" trip in an international newspaper, and risk her "secret" status.

Her "information" is her victim-hood by the evil Republicans.

The modern American woman on display, whine, complain, cry, moan and bitch.

Waxman is TOTALLY misconstruing her status at the time of this....AND making this WAY too secretive sounding.

I call BS on the whole thing...

He insists her status was COVERT at the time...


If this thread stays this slow...it isn't gonna be much good.

We're sure seeing comments like this a lot, not only on FR but on Rush, Hannity, etc. Why, oh why, are the Republicans in Congress and the White House such weenies? After a while even a 98 lb. weakling gets tired of having sand kicked in his face, but not our guys.

Republicans can ask all the hard questions they like, but it still would not make the news for the average American.

Unlike Val's sob story will.

I am so sorry. I don't know why I posted three times.

NO WAIT. It's like that yellowcake attempted to be purchased by Saddam. You are seeing things. It does not exist. Waxman shall schedule a hearing. I will be vindicated.

My book will come out in a few months.

I'll bet she isn't. Unless those conditions were granted. Though the Pubbies on the committee would've had to agree to them, wouldn't they?

He isn't just saying she was covert...but that this "incident" caused her to lose her job as a covert agent!!!

He is LYING, LYING, LYING.

Toensing better get up and refute this...but, how??

I think she is just trying out how she would play this if she got to be in the movie.

Oh, how convenient. She pretty much can't say anything, and Waxy warns everyone not to challenge what a great risk she was taking.

He is reading a statement from someone at the CIA, which effectively limits her questions to what did you have for breakfast today, and are you comfortable.
