Plamegate. So maybe it'll finally come to a head in the next couple of days. Looking through the archives, I came across this post in which I refer to Bob Novak as a "piece of crap masquerading as a human." See, I'm a reasonable person. That post links to this 2/25/04 item:
Can Robert Novak succeed on the stage by playing the outraged husband of a CIA agent whose identity as a deep-cover spy had been revealed by a certain syndicated columnist?

The answer will become apparent March 6 when Novak dresses up as retired diplomat Joseph Wilson to perform before Vice President Cheney and some 500 other guests at the annual white-tie Gridiron Dinner at the Capitol Hilton.

In pursuing his day job as a nationally syndicated columnist, Novak identified Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, as a CIA operative working in the field of weapons counterproliferation. The July 14 column has triggered a full-press FBI probe to find the leaker, amid much journalistic soul-searching.

Novak swears he’ll never tell anybody, including Wilson, who will also be at the dinner watching Novak (aka Joe Wilson) sing of his sad plight to the tune of “Once I Had a Secret Love.”
Of course, Novak apparently did squawk, cooperating with Fitzgerald from the beginning. And Cheney is up to his eyeballs in the investigation.

What fond memories those must be for Cheney and Novakula.
