Novak’s Glass House

"Novak’s Glass House"

The unveiling of Deep Throat this week has brought the right-wing attack hounds out of the woodwork as they try to fight Watergate all over again.

My favorite? Check out Bob Novak’s newest piece. In it, he lashes out against Mark Felt’s motives for becoming a source, saying Felt may have been driven by “reasons that were not necessarily noble or patriotic.”

Hmmmmm. Bob Novak attacking a secret source’s motives…

This would be the same Bob Novak who outed CIA agent Valerie Plame…based on a leak from secret sources…rumored to have originated in the White House… right after Plame’s husband exposed the White House’s false allegations about Iraq’s pursuit of uranium.

Only in Washington.
