You get the readers you deserve
Roger Simon, founder and chief financial beneficiary of PajamAmway, points out that even though Joseph Wilson pointed out that his wife felt “like she’d been hit in the stomach” when Robert Novak outed her, months later she posed for Vanity Fair which, to me, means that she got over it just like Roger was able to move on years after writing Scenes From A Mall.
Compounding the stupidty, one of his readers points this out:
Vanity Fair? Iâ€™ve got a better one than that. It was common knowledge among Wahinton(sic) insiders that Valerie Plame was employed by the CIA. Please scroll down to see the much clearer photo of Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame taken at the local elite restaurant, Nathanâ€™s Lunch:
As you can see from the Nathan’s caption, it says “Joseph Wilson and his super secret CIA spy-wife Valerie Plame (codenamed: Ivanna Happythighs) try the veal”. As you may also note, the picture was taken after Wilson’s book about the whole affair came out in case you’re one of those types who aren’t into that whole linear time construct.
If Scooter Libby uses this at his trial it will become known as the Famous Nathan Defense.
