Nothing to See Here

This whole Valerie Plame/Scooter Libby/Karl Rove stuff you've been hearing about? Nothing of consequence, according to conservative commentator Michael Barone.

For one thing the Media is making too much of it because they hate President Bush. For another, in Mr. Barone's opinion, an indictment of Libby or Rove would be unwarranted. Apparently she wasn't really a covert agent. Mr. Barone is sure of this and is apparently pitting his surety against that of the CIA who did believe she was a covert agent.

It's pretty dull reading really; just the standard denials. I don't think even Mr. Barone expects them to be taken seriously at this late date. Still, part of being a team player is writing these kind of articles.
