Do You Care…?

By July 12, 2005General

Before the whole dust-up starts over the next Supreme Court nominee and what their views are on issues that they will rarely if ever deal with, the big hysteria ’round here today is over Karl Rove and whether he leaked the name of Valerie Plame.

See, Joe Wilson was a US Ambassador. And he was critical of the Bush Administration, so he was beloved by the press. In some conversation, somebody leaked the name of his wife, Valerie Plame, and the fact that she worked for the CIA. She wasn’t in danger, this was just a no-no, or maybe not, not really sure. OK, so columnist Bob Novak reports it first. Then Matt Miller of Time (who’s married to Clinton campaign chief, confidant and daughter of a Time magazine muckety-muck Mandy Grunwald) runs the story and the courts threaten him with jail if he doesn’t’ reveal who gave him Valerie Plame’s name.

Tonight they actually said on NBC that they need to know in essence what the President knew and when he knew it. With the coming forward of Deep Throat, Washington needs another Watergate.

Do you care who leaked Valerie Plame’s name….? Anybody still awake out there….?

This is one of those stories that would just go away if not fanned daily by the press. America really doesn’t care. They’re busy making things and trying to compete.

For the record, here’s what we care about: our agenda and the 22% cost disadvantage facing American manufacturers.
