Here's more proof that the petty BS pushers have run out of new ideas for scandal-mongering: they are recycling the Plame issue.
First, we have two raging narcissists—the former covert agent, Valerie Plame, and the former ambassador, Joseph Wilson--married to each other and trying to live out/relive their political intrigue fantasies. The wife sees that the husband’s career is waning, so she uses whatever pull she has to give it a boost. However, because of his inability to tell a story and stick to it, the move backfires on him. And, like narcissists everywhere, he wants to point the finger at everyone but himself.
Particularly galling to the husband is the knowledge that everyone knows that he had to depend on his wife for the plumb position that he got (and fouled up). That’s got to be hard on a man’s self image. So in order to regain his manhood, Wilson has to cast himself as his wife’s protector; he must go on the “crusade” to find out who “put his wife in danger,” even if it reaches the “highest levels of power.”
However, before Wilson goes ballistic, no one can find a mention of his wife’s name in public except in Wilson’s entry of the 2003 version of Who’s Who in America, which was compiled and published in 2002 well before the so-called scandal.

Leaving aside all of the other inanities in this waste of time, it’s interesting to note that, had Mr. Wilson not brought all of this attention to himself regarding the yellow-cake controversy, few, if any would know his wife’s name. Going further back, if his wife’s identity was such a well-guarded secret, why even name her in the short biography?
The only thing more pathetic than the
Plames Wilsons themselves are the mainstream media types who continually try to pin the crime that didn’t happen on someone, anyone in the Bush Administration. This time, it’s the administration’s most hated and feared member, Karl Rove.
Meanwhile, the hordes are still intent on killing us all.
UPDATE: I wish I would have thought of this title.
