VALERIE PLAME FOR CIA DIRECTOR!!!!

No, I haven't heard a glimmer about this at all. But, wow, it's fun to watch wingnut heads explode. One actually managed to get out "forged birth certi--" before he went Bam!

1. Head explode?
Or die laughing at the thought that anyone would seriously suggest that? You must know some different wingnuts than I do.

2. It's not that bad a suggestion!
I'm curious -- why do you think Valerie Plame couldn't do the job?

3. Because he's a freeper and thinks Ms. Plame is an evil person.
You DID know about our dear "ben", didn't you?

5. DU has a pet wingnut?
I must confess that it was odd hearing that opinion expressed here. Thanks much, kestrel.

I would rather see her do DHS myself.

7. Joe Wilson trash-talked Obama harshly during the primaries
I don't have time to research for the link to the opinion pieces, but you'll find a link somewhere over at Larry (ex-CIA) Johnson's website (something to do with "no quarter" in the URL). Johnson also devoted multiple daily blogs railing against Obama for the better part of 18 months.

I don't think Plame would take the call from Obama.

Incidentally, I tend to disagree with Wilson/Plame, but I would like to understand what their beef is. The op-eds certainly didn't explain it. Wilson's opposition was utterly inconsistent with his persona and I was struck at the time by how remarkable and inexplicata his very strong opinion was. The reader was left with the impression that information was being held back.

This chapter of intrigue is worth a follow-up.

9. Here are links -- don't you disagree?

Larry Johnson, formerly CIA and ex-classmate of Valerie Plame, is widely seen as a Plame/Wilson surrogate -- not controversial to characterize him as such.

Johnson spent the better part of 18 months excoriating Obama.

Johnson's bizarre rantings -- not connecting them to Plame/Wilson, but the record is clear about Johnson's relationship with the Wilsons as a surrogate -- are here:

Do you agree?

10. Yell that out at your local pro-shop/health club/steak house
Heads will explode anti-aircraft style like in "Scanners". Awful carnage.
