I haven’t commented on the Plame/Rove kerfuffle because it’s just politics for the sake of politics, a fake scandal to try to take down a bogeyman, and that kind of stuff bores me. My take on the whole thing was pretty neatly summed up by John Tierney in the NYT:

“For now, though, it looks as if this scandal is about a spy who was not endangered, a whistle-blower who did not blow the whistle and was not smeared, and a White House official who has not been fired for a felony that he did not commit. And so far the only victim is a reporter who did not write a story about it.”
