One more on Plame

John Podhoretz has a great piece in today's New York Post: Scandal Implosion

The last two paragraphs capture what I was saying a few days ago:
What isn't controversial is this: Karl Rove didn't "out" Valerie Plame as a CIA agent to intimidate Joe Wilson. He was dismissing Joe Wilson as a low-level has-been hack to whom nobody should pay attention. He was right then, and if he said it today, he'd still be right.

And if Valerie Plame wants to live a quiet spy life, she should stop having her picture taken by society photographers and stop getting stories written about her on the front page of the Times.

And while were at it, can I just say that CNN has gone completely nuts? They just hads a picture of Rove with the headline "Worse than Watergate??"

Uhhh....are you kidding me?
