Robert Novak Dishes on Valerie Plame and Hubby
July 03, 2007 08:53 AM ET | Bedard, Paul | Permanent Link

It's not often that a political book hyped as a "tell-all" actually delivers the dirt, but that's certainly not the story in Robert Novak's fast-paced** bio The Prince of Darkness, 50 Years Reporting in Washington .

Let's get right to the point: Did the administration leak former CIA officer Valerie Plame's name to him to punish her hubby, Joe Wilson, who had blasted the president's claim that Iraq was shopping for uranium in Niger? Nope. He says that it was just an afterthought from his source, former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage.


--Novak really hated a story written by the Baltimore Sun suggesting that he loved the attention of the case and investigation. And don't get him started about the bloggers: "I was daily accused of treason and denounced in the most obscene terms, with personal threats against me and my family--even my grandchildren."

I feel so bad for Bob. Can you imagine those vile bloggers attacking Novak?

Oh the horror!! He will be suffering so hard limping to the bank to pick up his big checks from the publisher, AEI, Heritage and speakers forums for being a hack insider spawn of Satan.

Poor, poor Bob.

**Editor speak for thin, shallow and short.

This guy is scum. He should be in prison for treason with the rest of this administration.

I ran into that little narcissistic pig pumping gas into his corvette in Washington, DC. I told him he was a jerk, and he smiles and said, "Thank you." I replied, "Your welcome!"

one thing i never understood about the plame affair - why WASN'T Novak ever made the story? And why isn't the story about compromised national security and treason? If this had happened during a Democratic administration, you KNOW talk radio would've drummed the journalist (sic) out of the country (or put him behind bars) and the Democrats would be tarred and feathered as undermining our national security apparatus, forever barred from the White House.

but, the neocons get a pass on this? Never understood this.

What about the laws that prevent crooks from profiting from their crime? This is no different from OJ's "If I did it." I think people in some totalitarian countries that had meetings on their calendars with Brewster-Jennings (Plame's cover "employer") actually "disappeared." In many states, the profits are donated to the victim. Will Plame and husband Wilson get the dough? If one (blue) state demands it, will others?
