No Wonder He's Been Freaking Out On TV Lately
From the Washington Post:
A critical early success for Fitzgerald was winning the cooperation of Robert D. Novak, the Chicago Sun-Times columnist who named Plame in a July 2003 story and attributed key information to "two senior administration officials." Legal sources said Novak avoided a fight and quietly helped the special counsel's inquiry, although neither the columnist nor his attorney have said so publicly.Of course Novak sang. He realized early on that Fitzgerald would have no compunctions about putting his privileged butt in a jail cell for an indefinite period of time. And of course the rest of the media knew that he sang, which is why it's been so sickening to hear them talk so piously about "why is that mean man Fitzgerald picking on Pooooor Judy-Wudy when she didn't write any articles mentioning Plame?" They knew full well why. No wonder Novak's been freaking out lately. Between the Bushes pressuring him one way and Fitz another, he's probably ready for the funny farm.
That train left the station so long ago the tracks are overgrown.
