ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Removing all doubt

One of the problems the left has is that they have the idiots in the Hollywood Left spouting off nonsense. The latest is excerpted thanks to Newsbusters.

Bill Sammon, Washington Examiner: “A lot of critics are conflating the two and are saying that because Bush disclosed this piece of information, they're implying that Bush leaked the name.”

Ben Affleck: “He probably also leaked the name. There's just no proof of that.”

Sammon: “Even the prosecutor, even Fitzgerald is saying Bush didn't leak the name. So let's be clear, Bush didn't leak Valerie Plame's name -- not that we know of.”

Affleck: “Because if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!”

Bill Maher: “That is treason.”

Affleck: “You could be killed. That's not a joking around Tom DeLay 'I'll do a year, I bribed the state officials with corporate money.' That's like they shoot you in the battlefield for doing that. Don't you think we should find out who leaked that name?”

Come on, Affleck. You obviously have only been reading the New York Times. First of all, Plame wasn't outed by anyone (with the exception of perhaps her husband through David Corn of the Nation and previous to that, Aldrich Ames). Second of all she couldn't have been outed. She wasn't a covert agent. It's one of the things that Fitzie won't provide to the defense. Trust me if she had been covert, he'd be chomping at the bit to provide that in trial.

Second if he's going to accuse someone of treason, least of all the President of the United States, he'll need to provide more evidence than bloviating on Bill Maher. Do some research. Start with the Senate committe that looked into Wilson's Niger allegations and found them to be the hogwash they are.

The whole Plame mess is an attempt by Wilson to put his detractors on the defensive.

It's not about being "left" or "right", "liberal" or "conservative", Hah! (nothing conservative about this group!)'s more about telling the TRUTH! All one needs is eyes & ears that work to "know" (understand, comprehend, realize) that our president is a full blown devious, lying, murderous, criminal and will eventually end up in jail with the rest of the lying, cheating, murdering criminals he hangs with! Either way he's in hell now.

I just wish Anon would register with Blogger or post using the Other option so we can be sure that it's the same moonbat commenting from post to post.
