The Swamp

bob novakby Frank James

Politico is reporting that syndicated conservative columnist Robert Novak hit a pedestrian this morning during rush hour, then drove off in his black Corvette. Fortunately, the pedestrian appears to have sustained only minor injuries and was released from the hospital, according to the report which also says Novak was cited by the police.

Novak was chased down by a bicyclist who happened to be partner in a law firm who was pedaling to work when he saw the accident. Novak told journalists who arrived on the scene that he didn't know he had hit the pedestrian.

"I didn't know I hit him," Novak told reporters from Politico and WJLA on the scene. "He's not dead, that's the main thing." Novak said he was a block away from 18th and K St. NW, where the accident happened, when a bicyclist stopped him and said, "You hit someone." He said he was cited for failing to yield the right of way. (WJLA has video of Novak being interviewed its website. We can't display it in this posting because, alas, we don't have legal rights to it.)

Okay, maybe he didn't see him before he hit him. But there's reason to believe he had a great view of the pedestrian afterwards.The bicyclist was David Bono, a partner at Harkins Cunningham, who was on his usual bike commute to work at 1700 K St. NW when he saw the accident happen. As he traveled east on K. Street, crossing 18th, Bono said a "black Corvette convertible with top closed plowed into the guy. The guy is sort of splayed onto the windshield."

1. the initial report, not novakaine with the police, but Bono's story:
Finally, Bono said, Novak put his head out the window of his car and motioned him over. Bono said he told him that you can't hit a pedestrian and just drive away. He quoted Novak as responding: I didnt see him there.

As in "I didn't see him. That's why I hit him."...after that it all becomes spin....

5. That caught my attention. How do you not notice that?
Novak is either incredibly ignorant or too sick to drive. Take away his license or put him in a hospital for criminally insane.

6. One of the comments...
If it happened on K-street, he probably hit a lobbyist, which is to say he probably hit a McCain campaign staffer.

7. Was he tested for alcohol?
It seems to me that if your driving a 'Vet and smack someone, you should know it. The fact that Novak claims to not have seen him indicates his judgment was impaired...
