Where are all the great investigative reporters these days? If its Scooter Libby, he's a "leaker." If its an old Clintonista, shes a "whistleblower." Another example of media hypocrisy.

You do know that Mary McCarthy died in 1989, right?

Mary McCarthy was an investigative reporter? I thought she was a novelist and literary critic. One learns something new every day...

The important thing to remember is that Mary was a virgin.

I think this is the Mary that okie was referring to.

Times article

I think comparing someone trying to expose questionable government practices with someone executing questionable government practices doesn't exactly jibe.

All the cute comments leading up to your clarification were interesting, to put it politely. Either they are out of touch or they obviously don't care about leakers, when it is one of the libs trying to derail Bush. My point should be obvious, with all the Dems out there defending her as some kind of heroic person as a "whistleblower," wherein her leaks were obviously a crime, whereas the Valerie Plame case involves leaking that has never been established as a crime. If it was, Fitzgerald should be going after the person guilty of it. It has been claimed that he knows who it is. If he does, how come hes doing nothing. Why waste any more money on his stupid investigation into a crime that wasn't a crime?

My point about investigative reporters is the interesting history of McCarthy, her partisan politics, her possible links with Joe Wilson, and who knows what else? It is my opinion that certain factions in the CIA are involved in a CYA operation and an effort to get Bush. Do we need to be reminded of the failures of the CIA concerning several things, including 911? The "wall," which prohibited agencies from sharing information, may have been responsible for us not catching up to the plot before it happened. So where are the great investigative reporters doing some major hit pieces on this?

So, who are "all the Dems out there" who you allege are defending her? And how does that impinge on the probity and honor of any member here?

Couldn't be too many Dems out there defending her, given that none of us (who I flatter to think of as at least moderately interested in politics) knew what the hell you were blabbering about.....

Since Okie obviously intends this to be taken seriously, here's another little bit of absurdity. We are given a choice between deciding if this is politics or treason. How about honest patriotism from someone who doesn't want to see her nation screwed?
