Novak told Rove
I got a great laugh this morning when I read this. I cannot wait to start to see the Democrat reaction to the revelation that it was Bob Novak who told Karl Rove about Valerie Plame. It must really be a letdown to Democrats that Rove is not the evil mastermind who revealed what Andrea Mitchell termed “an open secret”
So where will the goalposts be moved to now? I suspect that we will rapidly enter the denial phase (‘It doesn’t matter who told Rove’) and eventually land squarely on, very imaginatively, on the “Republicans are evil” square with a side dish of “Bush is dumb” for putting Rove in such a sensitive position (that journalists could feed him information he could use politically).
