We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

This is post 401 for the Democrat From Kentucky. I've been at it for a few months now and hopefully my stuff is stomachable. I'm considering a move of every so often, giving a friend with an opposing viewpoint a chance to speak his mind on an issue. He's generally conservative and it's not a done deal but it's something I'm considering. I'm also still working on the idea of a newsletter, I've just been busy lately as I've got plenty on my plate in addition to the blog. Now, on to the good stuff...
Bob Novak Says The President Know Who Leaked and I don't mean his bladder either. Bob Novak, the one who started the whole Valerie Plame affair by printing the information in his column way back when, said he thinks the president knows who the leaker is and should name them or say he doesn't know. The Washington Post has the story.
Novak said Tuesday that the public and press should be asking the president about the official rather than pressing journalists who received the information.
Novak said in his speech that an investigation into his role in the Plame affair "snowballed out of proportion" as a result of a "campaign by the left." But he also blamed "extremely bad management of the issue by the White House," saying, "Once you give an issue to a special prosecutor, you lose control of it."
Novak is right about one thing. We, as citizens should be hammering the administration to find out who leaked all this. We're the one's he should be answerable too. It's interesting to see where this will go next. I rarely agree with Novak but he's right and this should have been at the administration's feet all the time. As I discussed with Cynicus and Greymagious months ago, we all thought this thing was going to be turned around and spun in a way to turn it away from the president. It's interesting that Novak has spun it back considering he was one of the people who helped start this whole mess. What fun.
