Say what you want about the serious news function of satirical shows like “The Daily Show” in today’s treacherous media landscape, but only those, like Jon Stewart, operating in the Comedy Central orbit can get away with asking ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson if her breasts “are still working for the CIA.”

It’s great to see there are some true patriots left. What a great couple! They were great on the Bill Maher show too, pretty much came out for hanging Bush and Cheney. I’m usually against the death penalty, but that would be a beautiful sight to see.

Why isn’t Novak in jail?

For the same reason VP Cheney isn’t in jail, nor Condaleeza Rice, nor Stephen Hadley, nor Scooter Libby, nor George W. Bush.

Valerie Plame Wilson reminds us that there are dedicated and honorable intelligence officers out there.

We need more of them.

Food for thought in the articles ...

“CIA inspector general blamed own officers; scapegoats for intel on 9/11, Iraq?”

Novakula? I’ve never seen Novack and Scrooge McDuck in the ame place at the same time. If you had the misfortune of seeing him in his earlier days at CNN he dressed like a 1960’s racing track tout complete with daily schedule hanging in the jacket pocket. Now he affects the manor to which he has become accustomed so someone’s taught him how to dress. In seersucker,polyester, or silk and wool he’s still a low life Scrooge McDuck. He long ago sold out his immigrant parents love of democracy for a shot at disgracing his family name by being the first reporter in our history to have deliberately uncovered a working CIA officer putting many at risk and damaging our security all for a political hit.

One of covert CIA agents was outed , a treasonus offense by a few americans for purely political gain, a few traitors to our country, called D. Cheney & G. Bush. Short circuiting numerous covert operations and putting other CIA agents in peril, not to mention closing up a portion of the only human intellegence we had on Iran in the process. Leaving Cheney of course to invent his own intellegence as he has so often in regard to Iraq. If anyone of us had committed this act we would surely be locked away. But that offense has still never seen the light, Libby was convicted of lying to a grand jury, knowing full well he had an escape shoot. They had no choice , it was the only way to guarantee his silence. But these criminals who planned and committed the act are still at large, still in power, still causing damage to our nation each day they remain in power. But the same house of Rep.s that impeached Clinton over the BJ’s, had no problem with an act of treason when committed by these criminals. Its a shame we can’t march to the white house with torches, tar & feathers….Benedict Arnold was more of a patriot then our VP & his stooge.

I saw this last night.  It was good to see her slam Novakula, who needs to to be put in a silver-plated jail cell: expensive but worth it.
