Weep for the Wilsons

Conservatives are often accused of having no heart and no compassion. However, I feel truly awful about the dismissal of Valerie Plame's lawsuit against the Bush administration.

With the case out of court, how are Plame and her husband Joseph Wilson going to attract the media attention which has been their lifeblood since the beginning of this manufactured scandal terrible ordeal?

Actually, I have an idea:


All we want is to be left alone!

1 Great. You've gone and blown Joe's new undercover gig.
Wait till Fitzgerald hears about this.

2 Wait, is that Joe or Valerie?

8 Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is. Was it over when the Republicans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now! Cuz when the going gets tough ... ... ... the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

10 Thosenaive hippie chickswho soldtheir bicycles to fund Joe's valient struggle can wave at theWilsons as they pass in their spanking newLegal Fund Range Rover.
And that's amusing, no matter who you are.

13 Well, Valerie is still hot, so I guess Joe will have his consolation.

17 I'd do Valerie. She's hottttt. She has a certain look--you know, she projects this sense that she really knows how to nasty.

I'd do her, treat her like sh*t, and walk away.

Okay, maybe I'd come back for more.

I'm a hypocrite.

18 On the Byrd front, I feel sorry for the Senate stenographer, with all that stopping, starting, repetition, and minute-long dramatic pauses.

"Crap! Did he say 'What is it about?' four times or five?"

19 So, she has a book coming out in the fall, a movie deal, and their retirement to live on. Then what? I guess she can do the speaking circuit, but for how long? No one wants to hear Wilson and what she can talk and write about is limited. Unless they are independently rich, the money is going to run out.

20 All I want to know is when they're going to charged with treason.

21 <sob>Dear God, when will they let the Wilsons out of Abu Ghraib?

Posted by: CheChe at July 20, 2007 12:19 PM (s7Ian)

22 I guess she can do the speaking circuit, but for how long?

Until January 2009. After that, time to polish up the resume.

28 Whenever I think about this situation, I envision Wilson and Plame chasing a TV truck down the street while screaming at the crew to leave them alone.

29 Hey...Ace gets a mention in amateur lefty webzine Slate for The New Republic stories from Iraq BS. More impressively, it's covered on NROs The Tank blog.

The passionately conservative Ace of Spades has no trouble believing the story's a fake: "The New Republic
has had a long and troubled past with
too-ideologically-good-to-be-true, too-difficult-to-verify but
too-juicy-not-to-run stories in the past. Now an anonymous 'soldier' is
reporting for them (illegally, one presumes) from Iraq, and is telling
implausible stories that just so happen to portray his 'fellow
soldiers' as vicious monsters."

I am not so sure that Ace is 'passionately conservative' as much as he is just hopped on Valu-Right and no sleep most of the time when he posts.

30 I followed the link above to the story about Cheney being in charge during Bush's colonoscopy, and then (foolishly) read the comments. About eighty-five community college sophomores made exactly the same joke, one after another. Someday I'd like to meet a Lefty who has had even one original thought during his life.

31 Cheney dozes of in the President's chair and dreams ofresolving the Plame affair: "Have Joe Wilson shot immediately. Small caliber, to the nuts if you can find 'em."
"Then bring our littleVal to me in the Lincoln bedroom.After takinga ride on the "USS Cheney" for a couple of hours,she'll rat out every traitor in the CIA... if I threaten to STOP!"
