There will be many nice things said about Scowling Poo Robert Novak, who died today.
Here is how I like to remember him:
Now they’ll tell you that Novak was a tenacious, dogged reporter and a wonderful American who loved his country and was healthfully skeptical of government. There is, though, only one thing actually worth remembering about Scowling Poop Robert Novak: He blew the cover of a covert CIA operative in the newspaper. Even the fawning obituary at the conservagoat Web site Human Events had to call the Plame affair “truly strange.”
I can think of a lot more colorful language for it than that.
