(T)he Supreme Court denied the review of a lawsuit brought by Valerie Plame Wilson and Joseph Wilson, ending the quest for redress of their constitutional rights. The Court's decision reflects the trend toward closing the door on any recourse for a citizen who has been injured by federal officials. The Court's message is clear: federal officials can use their publicly funded positions to attack political adversaries without consequence.

Can’t these two just go crawl under a rock somewhere?
The two leftist pixies need to go back to drinking latte at the local Starbucks in Santa Fe. Their “15 minutes” IS OVER!
Remember when Sante Fe didn’t blow?
As someone who regularly represents the right-wing victims of federal oppression, I can testify that the law more and more regards federal officials as utterly unaccountable to ordinary citizens for anything. Down that path does not lie a Free Republic.
I would only amend your post to: Remember when the People’s Republic of Santa Fe didn’t blow?
Check how they write about themselves in the third person. Wonder who wrote it? George Soros?
What was hysterical was that their initial claim was that just knowing her name was a leak, and Who’s Who had her name prior to the supposed ‘outing’.
Good to hear that they got laughed at.
By Valerie Plame Wilson
and Joe Wilson
Last week, in an unsurprising but still disappointing decision, the Supreme Court denied the review of a lawsuit brought by Valerie Plame Wilson and Joseph Wilson, ending the quest for redress of their constitutional rights.
The Santa Fe New Mexican allows its Op-Ed contributors to discuss themselves and their legal problems in the third person?
How completely bizarre.
You are right, of course. Allow us, if you will, our fifteens minute of middle-school gloating about these two particular losers in court....
“the law more and more regards federal officials as utterly unaccountable to ordinary citizens for anything.”
Truly troubling. However, their Op-Ed is so convoluted on the legal issues that it would appear that THEIR claim was highly questionable. Thus, the Supremes wouldn’t hear it.
Scooter Libby is the one who should be crying , not these two butt wipes.
I wish Scooter could sue Colon Powell, for not telling the truth.
fifteens minute = fifteen minutes
>>>> Check how they write about themselves in the third person. Wonder who wrote it? <<<<
You know, it’s very possible that these two yoyos think of themselves and their fictitious little melodrama in the third person.
Which is weird, but they have proven themselves to be a couple of fruitcakes.

Exactly. We would have to see the case to know what really happened, and what precedents may or may not have been set/denied.
someone once analyzed lying and found that lying takes many more words than telling the truth. So no wonder this article was unreadable.

Yep. Frickin’ Californians poisoning everything.
What??? She was "injured" by her own imagination!
What a joke she is....just another "nothing" who always thought she was a "something".
Yes, she was “injured” in a “basic-rights assault.” Sounds like a civil lawsuit’s in the works. Anything to sell some books!
The only men in D.C. that didnt know she was undercover were
the three she didn’t service!
For 5 years these people have known that Richard Armitage was the “leaker”, yet they are STILL lying about it. Never underestimate the shamelessness of the left.
*Keyboard is now offline due to sudden intrusion of beverage fluids*
“federal officials can use their publicly funded positions to attack political adversaries without consequence.”
No kidding? When have they ever done otherwise? People in the Clinton Administration didn’t attack their critics? Boo hoo.
“yet they are STILL lying about it. Never underestimate the shamelessness of the left.”
Don’t know if you’ve seen it, but this article at American Thinker (http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/07/journalists_protest_global_war.html ) today explains it:
Another theory advanced by the Nazis was the Big Lie:
“(T)he broad masses ... more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods”
They’re two schemers whose schemes haven’t worked out too well.
Losers indeed. Gloat with glee.
This must be and editorial.
He who mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished. Proverbs 17:5
Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice...Proverbs 24:17
Is this really a newspaper? It frankly sound more like a “MoveOn” type blog.
Sadly enough, it is the newspaper of record for the capitol city of New Mexico, where the motto is “ote early, vote often.”
I had nearly forgotten the two of them existed, and they go and ruin that by writing an article about themselves.
Why doesn't she just work a street corner like the rest of them?
